ZONE MODULES is a geometric catalog of organic-like textures, chemical experiments and interferences, which include collage, sound, video and installation with glass screens, mirrors, and refractive lenses.


The trajectory of the work itself stems from the artist exploring early science fiction imagery and contemporary ideas of "Future" which are played out in the exhibition by working with two dimensional forms, which are then translated into a fourth dimensional installation with light refractions, video interference, noise and kinetic experiments. ZONE MODULES refers to concepts of space and organization of rudimentary light and is influenced by artists like Laszlo Moholy-Nagy and Man Ray, using specific color tones or works strictly in grayscale to pinpoint the gradation of geometry, abstraction and the distinct lines of residue left from chemical and refractive reactions.


Suzy Poling is also known as Pod Blotz, an experimental sounds artist lavished with tape manipulation, organ drone and electronics, she uses a considerable amount of tape manipulation to make certain Musique Concrete arrangements.


Pod Blotz has performed and collaborated with Nautical Almanac, Mat Brinkman, Kites, Dolphins into the Future, Blood Stereo, John Wiese, Smegma, David Scott Stone, Black Dice, MV Carbon, Metalux, Stellar Om Source and Zaimph. Poling's visual art projects have been shown at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and Southern Exposure amongst others.
