As part of its series of public performances, exhibitions and lectures featuring pioneering and emerging artists who explore the boundaries of electronic art, iEAR Presents! welcomes composers and musicians Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus, who perform as LoVid, to the Rensselaer campus on Wednesday, September 27 at 7:30 p.m. in the Darrin Communications Center, iEAR space, Room #174 on the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute campus (www.rpi.edu) in Troy, NY.  This event marks the public presentation of the artists' Spring '06 Create @ iEAR residency, which was made possible in part by a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts Music Program – Residencies in New Music Technology. The event is FREE and open to the public.

LoVid explores signal and memory through media  crossing interdisciplinary projects.  This presentation will focus on wireful interactions with technology by short-circuiting a PC graphics card and, starting from the table up with LoVid's Sync Armonica, using the video and sound it synthesizes to assemble a collaged webpage of flickering GIFs.   Video stills of LoVid's work are on display in the first floor corridor of West Hall, RPI campus, Troy, NY.

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 many opposing elements in their work, contrasting hard electronics with soft patchworks, analog and digital, or handmade and machine produced objects. This multidirectional approach is also reflected in the content of their work: romantic and aggressive, wireless and wire-full. LoVid is interested in the ways in which the human body and mind observe, process, and respond to both natural and technological environments, and in the preservation of data, signals, and memory.

iEAR Presents! is a series of public performances, exhibitions and lectures featuring pioneering and emerging artists who explore the boundaries of electronic art.
