Tali Hinkis & Kyle Lapidus, “LoVid: Wireful to Wireless,” School of Art Lecture
November 11, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus, or LoVid, will present a lecture, “Wireful to Wireless,” at the LSU School of Art at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, November 11, 2015, in the Art Building, room 330.
Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus began collaborating as LoVid in 2000. An alchemy of independent interests in technology has defined LoVid’s aesthetic, combining craft-oriented analog processes and playful engineering with natural and social science. LoVid’s live performances, participatory public artworks, immersive installations, and video and textile projects express the radiant noise of an electrified but human world.
LoVid’s video practice begins with the production of audio/video synthesizer instruments. With these objects, collaborators Tali Hinkus and Kyle Lapidus record abstract, colorful, and noisy audiovisuals. The patterns and colors are created with archaic analog technology without the use of cameras or digital tools. This process-based practice is a reflection on craft in the mediated era as well as notions of progress and ownership.
An exhibition by LoVid curated by Laura Blereau, Tephra Garden, will be on view at Good Children Gallery in New Orleans November 14–December 6, 2015. Visit goodchildrengallery.com/upcoming.html for more information about the exhibition.
