The Department of Visual Arts presents a lecture by the collaborative artist project LoVid, part of the department's Spring 2017 Visiting Artist & Designer Series Lecture. LoVid (Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus) creates large scale interdisciplinary projects that combine new technology with social interventions and public spaces. Their works explore the often invisible or intangible aspects of contemporary society, such as communication systems and biological signals. They are particularly interested in the ways technology seeps into the evolution of human culture. Our practice includes performances, participatory public art, handmade technologies, textiles, prints, App-art, experimental video, and immersive installations. Our diverse practice invokes processes and ideas from art, science, and technology, to question perceptions of time, place, and the self in the networked era.
