COAXIAL ARTS - March 24-36, 2017

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 explored textures of metal hardware through a collection of sculptures. Pelly’s video work captured the form and movement of each element. The same materials were used to create Carey’s accompanying soundscapes. Each fixture installed in a different area of the gallery, formed an environment that altered depending on the viewer’s location within the space, as they perceived a varying blend of light and sound.

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