INFINITY STAGE: SMASHISM GROUP VIDEO SCREENING. CLOSING EVENT
This is the closing event for Suzy Poling’s residency “Infinity Stage”. Her video art and light art installation called “Time Dilation Geometry” will be up at Coaxial Arts from August 13th-August 29th. The installation is about light and sound dissension, video interferences, mirrored sculptural interactivity and hypnotic rotation within a blacked out area. The objective of this installation is to examine scale, repetitive patterns, light phenomenon and the relationship between synthetic video objects and three dimensional objects in a black space.
This final event is to celebrate a group of talented video artists at Coaxial. Works will be abstract, performative, satirical and narrative pieces. Curated by Suzy Poling and Coaxial Arts.
