The Block And CRT Video Cubes

Every one knows despite Hantarex and Sony no longer offering CRT monitors they are still a preferred display technology for many galleries and artists, that's where companies like The Block come in. Also they are super sweet for video feedback effects as they react differently to other displays and have real presence as objects!


The Block offers monitors for hire to artists, curators, galleries and museums staging film and video work throughout the UK. The Block funds, produces and provides support for a range of projects which can be found in the updates section of this website."

LoVid: The Other Side of Ground

new video work by LoVid at Mixed Greens Gallery  here is the facebook event

16 June
Mixed Greens
531 west 26th street, 1st floor
New York, New York

"Mixed Greens is pleased to present the site-specific window project The Other Side of Ground by Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus, the artist duo known as LoVid. Their dynamic, colorful pieces are a masterful mix of the low- and high-tech.
Known for their innovative performances, live video installations, tactile objects, patchworks, sculptures, and installations, LoVid encourages the viewer to reexamine his/her relationship to the digital world. By mixing analog and digital philosophies, processes, and techniques, LoVid’s pieces come to life. In one piece, for instance, it was necessary for viewers to touch points on a monolithic sculpture in order for a video to activate. Human touch became the subject of a digital output.

The Other Side of Ground consists of five large-scale digital prints in the windows of Mixed Greens. The vivid colors and patterns are created with LoVid’s handmade video synthesizer, recorded and recomposed into analog prints. The artists’ visual work offers an intensely visceral experience, forming a blended landscape that incorporates complementary elements from media noise and abstract painting. They are ultimately interested in the ways in which the human body and mind observe, process, and respond to natural and technological environments, as well as how we preserve data, signals, and memory.

The Other Side of Ground is a series of prints referencing Newman-like mid-century abstraction and the sublime, but quite literally representing noise and digital energy that we rarely visualize.
Mixing the handmade with the technological, LoVid questions and recontextualizes our relationship with technology."

Ian Andrews

Ian Andrews has a great site detailing his multimedia work here  but he also has some great info on Subvertigo a VJ/video art collective started by Ian, John Jacobs and Marco Fante  here  (also see skynoise for more info)

I really recommend reading the interviews and ideas on the Subvertigo but as always the technology caught my eye including the Arlunya VPS210

I think I already posted this a while back but it can't hurt to do it again
