August 19-23 was an action-pack, productive, Visual Arts residency week with the celebrated NYC artist team – LoVid, Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus. LoVid’s 2019 resiliency marks the third time that LoVid has joined us at the IEA, previous residencies were in 2010 & 2006.

During their residency week Kyle Lapidus spent studio time generating new video recordings with both with the LoVid Synth and the Expanded Media Sandin IP. From this new content Tali Hinkis edited and collaged new images for prints. The prints were made on a number of different print-media including, large format dye sublimation prints on satin fabric, digital prints on IEA Xuan bamboo paper and digital prints on both matte paper and watercolor cotton rag. As well, LoVid printed on canvas and photo-Tex sticker paper! Another project for LoVid during their residency was a producing small a print edition of two-color silkscreen on digital prints. Thanks to Myles Calvert for working with Tali & Kyle on the silkscreen prints. Lastly Tali composited a selection of video footage that Kyle had recorded during the residency for a seven-channel video presentation on the TSI/Harland Snodgrass Gallery.
