LoVid


iParade#2: Unchanged When Exhumed

ARTIST STATEMENT

LoVid’s interdisciplinary works explore the ways technology seeps into the evolution of human culture. LoVid’s practice includes performances, participatory public art, handmade technologies, textiles, prints, App-art, experimental video, and immersive installations.

LoVis focuses on the juxtaposition of media with physical objects, geographic spaces, and the human touch. We bridge between handmade engineering and traditional art or craft forms by using a DIY philosophy and aesthetic. This allows us to reflect on the role of handmade production and the physical gesture of art making in a time increasingly dominated by machines and virtual experiences. 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. LoVId creates immersive installations combining live and recorded synthesizer based video, digital prints, and other mixed media objects.
