NEW MEDIA FALL LECTURE SERIES PRESENTS INTERDISCIPLINARY ARTIST DUO LOVID NOVEMBER 1

Date Released: 10/27/2006

LoVid, an interdisciplinary artist duo composed of Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus, will be the guest artists/speakers at the Purchase College New Media Fall Lecture on November 1. Their presentation begins at 6:30 PM in the Neuberger Museum of Art. The lecture, part of the First Wednesdays @ the Neu program, is free and open to the public and is co-sponsored by the New Media program and the Neuberger Museum.

Purchase College, State University of New York, is located at 735 Anderson Hill Road, Purchase, N.Y.

LoVid’s work includes live video installations, sculptures, digital prints, patchworks, media projects, performances, and video recordings that overwhelm the senses. Their work combines many opposing elements, 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. They are 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.
