The focus of a new art installation in the atrium of Compuware Corp.’s downtown Detroit headquarters includes, appropriately, water and computer programming.

The installation, by Annica Cuppetelli and Chris Mendoza, will play off the landmark waterfall in the 16-story atrium and use images based on a computer program developed by the artists.

“The installation uses forms and movements related to water droplets and underwater creatures,” said Meg Heeres, curator of Boutique: A Compuware Gallery, the company’s art space. “Their work combines hanging sculptures made with tulle fabric, and video images that are projected on the fabric forms.”

In addition, the shimmering images respond and react to the viewer’s body movements in real time.

The installation opens with a reception from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., and will be open during public atrium hours: 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

The installation runs concurrently with “Eyes-A-Wide,” a five-week show that opened Jan. 28, and features prints, painting and sculpture by local artists. “Eyes-a-Wide” is open to the public each Friday until March 4 from noon to 5 p.m. at the gallery, inside the Compuware atrium.
