Past Events

July 16, 2016 Infinity Stage: Light Axis and the Human Mirror – Suzy-Poling “Infinity Stage” Residency Coaxial Los Angeles, CA

Facebook Event Page – facebook.com/events/303966819939694

 

This event is an live taping involving Poling’s sculptural mirrored objects, large painted back drops, installation pieces, costumed figures and sound in collaboration with Experimental Half-Hour. There will be sonic elements to this Taping and guest performers within Poling’s piece. The objective for this collaboration is to explore what the mirror’s refractive abilities are relation to the live video synthesis and human form. The idea is for the human to be covered in a mirror sculptural body suit that is of an architectural design. The human performer can play the roll of a lighthouse or structure for light phenomenon and transmissions to occur.

March 28 — March 29, 2015 COAXIAL Opening Coaxial Los Angeles, CA

Brock and Eva of Experimental Half-Hour started a new art space in Los Angeles called Coaxial, dedicated to experimental television and media art. With this space we intend to bring the community of experimental video art and television together by hosting events, workshops, live TV tapings, and art exhibition.

The aim of the space is to exhibit and have a workspace for media art in Los Angeles. The facility will host events that tailor to media art and performance. On non-performance days the facility will serve as a workshop for media art by making use of the built in sound-stage, live television equipment, and analog video effect devices. The name itself was derived from cooperative arts exchange, Coax, to an exchange of ideas and processes that can be presented and exhibited to the larger arts community.

The facility will be available for use by artists and we intend to host a rotation of resident artists that can make use of the space to create new works that they otherwise would not be able to.

On a regular basis the space will host exhibitions of media art and have a store-front window display of installations. The space will showcase underground pieces of art that otherwise would not be shown in many galleries due to the nature of more ephemeral media art not being conducive to the gallery sales system.

http://myLA2050create.maker.good.is/projects/LAmedialab

This facility will act as a hybrid between a public access studio (something that is currently lacking in the city of Los Angeles) and a media lab for video and sound. We will be able to host workshops for the community, host live events, and have residencies for media artists.

Help us spread the word to make LA the best place for media arts.

September 12, 2011 Experimental 1/2 Hour at Time Based Art (TBA:11) THE WORKS at Washington High School SE Stark and 13th Portland, OR 97214

We will be hosting a night at Time Based Art (TBA:11) this year on Monday, Sept 12th!
More info and tickets here.

Experimental 1/2 Hour, a biweekly cable access program produced by Eva Aguila & Brock Fansler, presents a night of video and live multimedia music performances produced for stage and television through the facilities of Portland Community Media. Hosted by Beau von Hinklywinkle and organized especially for TBA, this visual and sonic variety show exposes the fertile underground of cable access.

Lucky Dragons will rearrange sound and play with our perception of “band” with the help of technology and the audience; Pod Blotz will bring a crystallized light mirrored machine as a hypnotic offering for sonic and refractive interplay; Ashby Lee Collinson will present a new episode of her psycho-sexual performance project, Princess Dies; industrial S&M band Flænge God will deliver both pleasure and pain; and Barbara Kinzle of Oregon Painting Society, The Greys, and The Slaves will debut her solo project, “Barbara.” Video works from Beau von Hinklywinkle, Lucky Dragons, Ben Drigg, Cristopher Cichocki, Brenna Murphy, Jamie Potter, Sara Ludy, Neo Total, Luis Gonzalez, and Peter Larsson will accompany the live experience.
