Light Reading event: Please note new Date and Time

Light Reading Lovid Saturday 16th February 6pm

LoVid (Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus) will present their work with analog audio/video synthesizers and discuss their conceptual, technical, and aesthetic interests. The focus of the presentation will be LoVid’s approach to technology as an extension of the human body and gesture as well as the development of man-machine interaction in the context of technological advancement. Some themes will include hardware video, Wireful aesthetics, and retro-futurism, as well as historical and contemporary artists working with similar techniques and ideas.

LoVid will perform with their wearable A/V synthesizer, Coat of Embrace: Created in 2006, the instrument is inspired by early experimentation with image processing as well as current trends in DIY and hacker culture. Coat of Embrace is functionally related to LoVid’s previous A/V synth, Sync Armonica, and draws on concepts and feel developed in the VideoWear, while getting middle ages preliterate, real old school. The instrument transforms raw electric current into mesmerizing colors and patterns with an enveloping sound.
