Designed by New York-based artist duo LoVid, this special artwork bundle includes a new video art piece titled Aluminism along with a limited edition silk art scarf, exclusively designed for Sedition.
Aluminism is a moving image tapestry woven with contrasting earth tones and bright, technological colours. Drawing inspiration from textile design and from the idea of immersion into a landscape, this audio-visual work simulates constant motion in a composition of patterns, rhythms, and disruptions. Accompanying the digital artwork, LoVid present an exclusive video art wearable scarf, made of real silk, transforming media from the digital screen into the physical realm, through wearable texture and colour. Digital imagery taken from LoVid’s video work Aluminismis printed on to silk, produced with their handmade video instruments used in performances and studio recordings. Here, they blend seeming opposites - the handmade with the machine-made, and the ephemeral with the permanent, to bring a new dimension to digital art.
Having integrated textiles into their digital work since 2003, LoVid explore ‘handmade technologies’ through performances, participatory public art, textiles, prints, apps, experimental videos, and immersive installations. Their designs aim to bridge the digital and the tactile, fusing vivid chromatic compositions from electronically-produced visuals with drawings in ink and oil pastels that mimic their electronic counterparts.
