After 39 years at 26 Holden Street, The Artery Lounge relocated and expanded in early 2010, leaving behind a stripped-out shell of a bar. Extrapolating upon the architecture of the space itself, the definitions of artery, and the remaining relics of the former watering hole, Nofziger has created an immersive multimedia environment.
history and nostalgia, this work also considers anatomy and transit. Transparent
red vinyl saturates the gallery inside and transforms the view of the
exterior. This altered light shifts dramatically throughout the day. A
pool table invites viewers to spend time in the evolving space and to
participate in the installation. Amplified and altered, the sounds of
the game gain impact, and resonate through the bones of the structure.
