info:

Score to PYLON III--choreographed by Coleman Pester // TMS

PYLON III is a multi media performance blending highly physical dance, active visual projections, and live-feed surveillance; blurring the line between observer and observed and is the third iteration of PYLON.


The ongoing project PYLON is concerned with themes of systematic fear and control placed on human bodies operating within modern society; between communal pressure and self-fulfillment, between surveillance and privacy, between unyielding architecture and fragile flesh. This is an investigation of watching and individuation. PYLON features dynamic choreography, architectural installation, and a complex quagmire of digital image gathering/projection.

Art show on Vashon Island DEC 6 2019


Salt Marsh with Aaron Turner. Come see a whole bunch of our artwork! At Hastings-Cone Gallery on Vashon Island. Opening Dec 6th


Faith Coloccia is a visual artist and musician. 

Her practice is focused on creation myths, both archetypal, historical and personal. She is interested in creation born from nothingness, necessity or proximity, and how the act of reclaiming personal narrative may benefit the communal whole. Her work corresponds to the body, internal functions and in relation to unseen forces. Both chance and coincidence play an important part in her process. In her art as well as in her music, she is actively seeking to collapse time into an eternal present moment, her working process often serving as a ritualized means to celebrate the the force of life.


Coloccia is the founder and director of the musical projects Mamiffer and Mára, as well as a contributor to many others. She is the co-founder of SIGE records based in Vashon, WA where she currently resides. 

Aaron Turner is a visual artist and musician residing in Vashon, WA. Over the past 25 years he has worked at the intersection of music and visual art - searching for ways to connect these worlds through intentional practices, as well as uncovering the underlying parallels that inherently exist between them. The impetus for these explorations has been two-fold: to give form to otherwise unutterable internal emotional currents, and to find means for comprehending identity - that which is inborn, as well as that which is manufactured. Of particular interest to Turner is the reconciliation of dissonant segments of internal/external existence, and how exposition of the shadow self through impulsive creative acts may serve as catalyst to this goal.
  
Turner is most readily recognized for his work as a participant in the musical groups SUMAC, Mamiffer and Old Man Gloom, as well as for founding the Hydra Head Records label, and co-founding SIGE Records with his partner Faith Coloccia.
