Interdisciplinary art duo, LoVid is comprised of Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus. Their work begins in the audio video world through original video symphonies they compose and perform on synthesizers they themselvs create. A truly self made and contained module, LoVid writes of their collage and patchworks, "Our collages are saturated reconstructions of video stills printed on paper and fabric... These patchworks are the materialization of video and the preservation of information that could otherwise be lost due to media broadcasting standards. Video stills are transferred onto fabric and rearranged to mimic the density and intensity of movement in our audiovisual work." LoVid is currently an artist in residence at Smack Melon in Brooklyn.
