EAI partnered with Moving Image New York to present LoVid's 2015 video cell-a-scape.
In EAI's 45th anniversary year, we celebrate new moving image work that carries forward a legacy begun in the early days of video and computer technology in the 1960s and 70s. During a residency at the Experimental Television Center (ETC) in Oswego, New York, LoVid (Tali Hinks and Kyle Lapidus) worked with historical image-audio processing devices (including Nam June Paik's "Wobbulator," the Sandin Image Processor, and the Jones Colorizer). The duo began to create their own hand-built synthesizers, culminating in their main instrument, the Sync Armonica, constructed during a residency at Eyebeam in 2005.
cell-a-scape visualizes the juxtaposition of media with physical objects, geographic spaces, and human culture, and foregrounds the porous boundaries between the "reality" of nature and the constructed experience of technology.
