Coaxial Arts presents Suzy Poling’s two month residency called “INFINITY STAGE”. Her residency is divided into multiple events which include: a collaborative live taping with Experimental Half-Hour, an elaborate art installation/performance, two guest art video screenings, open studio, and a workshop.
Poling’s vision for the residency at Coaxial Arts is to explore the relationship between a tangible/physical space and a digital/synthetic space. During the time of the residency, she intends to continue her explorations of with sound, performance art, sculptural relationships, geometry of a room, complex geometric reflective objects, light phenomenon, animation and video synthesis. The objective is to push the realms of video art, installation and performance in a live setting aurally and visually through hypnotic experimentation.
Programming and events are made possible with the support of the Mike Kelley Foundation of the Arts.
Artists Saira Huff and Anthony Ramon Maldonado will join Suzy in this 25 minute performance art piece. http://www.suzypoling.com/portfolio/sculpturalhumanactions/

INFINITY STAGE: TIME DILATION GEOMETRY
This is the opening event of Poling’s take over inside of Coaxial Arts. The installation idea is about light and sound dissension, video interferences, mirrored sculptural interactivity and hypnotic rotation within a blacked out room. This new body of work is inspired by the book, “Order in Space” as it references multi-dimensional geometric objects and varied proportions. The objective of this installation is to examine scale, repetitive patterns, the relationship between synthetic video objects and three dimensional objects in a black room. LIVE SETS BY POD BLOTZ, CUBE AND TOM HALL.
