LoVid explores signal and memory through media crossing interdisciplinary projects. At Roulette the duo composed of Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus will perform with their homemade audio/video synthesizers Sync Armonica and Coat of Embrace. These sculptural instruments materialize LoVid’s signature wireful interactions with technology while generating enveloping and mesmerizing audio/video environments. The synthesizers were developed during a residency at Eyebeam in 2005 with additional support from Experimental TV Center’s Finishing Funds supported in part by public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a public agency, and by mediaThe foundation.

LoVid (Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus) overwhelms the senses with new media in their performances, videos, objects, and installations. LoVid has toured the US and Europe extensively performing, exhibiting, and lecturing at The Neuberger Museum, The Butler Institute of American Art , Evolution Festival (UK), The Kitchen, RISD, Mass Art, Kansas City Art Institute, University of Wisconsin, Futuresonic Festival (UK), The New Museum of Contemporary Art, Ocularis, The Happy Lion, and Institute of Contemporary Art London among many others. LoVid has been artist in residence at Eyebeam, Harvestworks, iEAR, Alfred University, and Stevens Institute of Technology, has received grants and awards from Experimental TV Center, NYSCA, Foundation for Contemporary Arts, and Greenwall Foundation, and is a free103Point9 transmission artist.
