Coaxial Arts Foundation is thrilled to announce Phase Shift Collective (Andrei Jay & Paloma Kop) as our October 2023 Artist in Residence.
Installation Opening & Performance
Tuesday, October 31st 2023
Phase Shift Collective will occupy Coaxial from 10/25 through 11/1, ultimately presenting an immersive audio/visual performance entitled, “Synthetic Forest.”
Andrei Jay is a mathematician, video artist, and educator. Paloma Kop is an experimental multimedia artist and ambient musician. Together, they do live audio visual performances and organize community and educational events for media artists.
They have helped start scanlines.xyz, organized events through Phase Space, and have been guest lecturers at Wesleyan University, Hamilton College, and NYU. Their current endeavor is Phase Shift, a movement for connecting artists and organizations across the US in ways that bypass consumerism-driven social media in favor of inclusive, community-driven networks.
Synthetic Forest is an immersive audiovisual performance presented by Phase Shift Collective (Andrei Jay and Paloma Kop). Drawing from video material and soundscapes collected during recent travels through national forests across the US, elements from nature will be deconstructed and recombined with experimental video and sound synthesis techniques, resulting in a hybrid cybernetic multi-sensory environment.
