LoVid’s Mood Mechanique (2015) reads like an interrupted transmission or a visual virus – dispersed and intense, urgent and ambiguous. The fragmented image reverberates between a repeated sequence of colour-coded horizontal lines and chaotically deviating biomorphic shapes. The visuals resemble a disrupted transmission which evades coherence, while the soundtrack suggests vibrations from another life form. Running counter to the slick advertising imagery of modern life, LoVid’s video work is animated entirely by the off-cuts and anti-matter that litters cyberspace, as encrypted communications ceaselessly repeat themselves until the transmission is universally corrupted.
