The Center for Holographic Arts, in collaboration with the SPLICE electronic music performance series, is pleased to present POLARITY, a one-night exhibition of polarized 3D projections and electronic sounds.
The event begins with a selection of 3D still images from a roster of talented stereographers, projected in the cavernous lobby of the Holocenter in Long Island City, Queens, with a live ambient electronic soundtrack.

The main event of the evening will be “Williamsburg Concerto No. 1”. 3D artist Carlton Bright has lived in and documented Williamsburg, Brooklyn for over 25 years. He assembled this ambitious and atmospheric 1-hour stereoscopic film from footage shot over the course of the decade spanning from 2003 to 2013. The work debuted at Ventana244 in spring of 2013, and was recently screened at Nitehawk Cinema.
Reviews of Williamsburg Concerto No. 1:
"Beautiful, poetic three-dimensional imagery. A micro-history of a particular place and time in New York City culture."
"Williamsburg as a theater of the streets, drunk with light, drunk with poetry, drunk with drunks."
A screening of Maximus Clarke’s 3D short OCCUPY YOUR MIND will precede Bright’s film. Filmed at the Occupy Wall Street encampment in Zuccotti Park in fall 2011, it features Clarke as Maxx Klaxon, his dictatorial pop/performance-art alter ego. Clarke satirically instructs the protestors to ignore the broken socioeconomic system, and immerse themselves in the distractions of mass media. OCCUPY YOUR MIND was first screened at the Clocktower Gallery in January 2012.
During the events, visitors will also have access to the Vault Gallery of the Holocenter. The classic 1920s bank vault space features a permanent exhibition of of art holograms by veteran artists in the field, as well as fresh visions from around the world.
Complimentary snacks and drinks will be available.
