Poast is a sculptor and an instructor at the Pratt Institute and the Julliard School of Music in New York City. He is originally from Warren County, OH. "Baroque Trajectory," is a seven-foot abstract steel structure, which withstood the destruction of the September 11th attack. It was installed in Lower Manhattan at the Trinity Plaza just a few blocks from Ground Zero in July 2001 and was on display until July 2002 as part of the Parks Temporary Arts Program. Unlike traditional artworks, Poast's sculpture is a functioning musical instrument. It is part of his Color Music series, which utilizes the visual qualities of color and shape to create music.
