The first immersive art experience from longtime collaborators Alex Pelly and Elaine Carey, Solid States emerged from the desire to combine experiments in interactive video and auditory phenomena in an intermedia, site-specific artwork.

In this examination of unyielding structure and malleability, Pelly and Carey will explore textures of metal hardware through a collection of sculptures. Pelly’s video work will capture the form and movement of each element. The same materials will be used to create Carey’s accompanying soundscapes. Each fixture will be installed in a different area of the gallery, forming an environment that alters depending on the viewer’s location within the space, as they perceive a varying blend of light and sound.

To be filmed, recorded, and arranged on site at Coaxial, the show will open to the public for the first time on Friday, March 24th, followed by a live concert event on Saturday, March 25th that will be a joint PELLYVISION and Experimental Half-Hour broadcast. The show will culminate in a brunch and closing event on Sunday, March 26th.
