Coaxial Arts Foundation

Fund: $10,000

Coaxial’s new Downtown space will host media artists Jennifer Juniper Stratford and Suzy Poling for 10 weeks this summer to create new video works. With a focus on obsolete or forgotten communication technologies and cast-off equipment from the entertainment industry, JJ Stratford produces cyberpunk and public access television programs, immersive installations, stage shows, music videos, and virtual reality ventures. Suzy Poling works with video, sound, and an array of other media to explore such topics as Archaic Futurism, time travel, ritual and performance, and natural phenomena. Both artists will also tape live sessions of Coaxial’s signature television program, Experimental Half-Hour (EHH), which mixes old analog technologies with new high-definition equipment, allowing experimental musicians, performance artists, dancers, and comedians to reach a wider audience.
