LoVid is an interdisciplinary artist duo composed of Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus. Their work includes live video installations, sculptures, digital prints, patchworks, media projects, performances, and video recordings; they combine opposing elements contrasting hard electronics with soft patchworks, analog and digital, or handmade and machine produced objects. Their multidirectional approach is reflected in the content of their work: romantic and aggressive, wireless and wire-full, exploring the translation, decay, and preservation of natural, electrical, and biological signals through collaborative practice. LoVid reinvestigates decades old technology through contemporary eyes driven by a fascination with the intimacy and fragility of technological objects, particularly as extensions of the human body. LoVid’s work represents and symbolizes the invisible and imperceptible connections between people as well as between people and technology; the flow of information , through neurological pathways, conversations, and electricity. LoVid has toured the US and Europe extensively performing at Eyebeam, Harvestworks, Boley, Max Protetch, Eyedrum, NY Underground Film Festival, Look and Listen Festival, Kraak(3) Festival, Lokaal01, Lumen and Futuresonic Festival, among many others. LoVid has exhibited at COCA Seattle, Sotheby’s, SOUTHFIRST, Happy Lion, Institute of Contemporary Art London and The New Museum of Contemporary Art.
