In Feeling/Filling Into, artist duo LoVid approaches the body and technology with two key aesthetic themes: signals and interaction. Presented as an immersive environment in the lobby of Five Manhattan West, the installation features two animations from the Hugs on Tape series, printed vinyl window frames, and a carpet in their signature vibrant design. The patterns and colors are sourced from the artist’s expansive library of 20+ years of audiovisual recordings. Made via digital and analog processes, hardware analog synthesizers convert electrical current into abstract visuals along with new code-based generative imagery.

The Hugs on Tape series (2021-present) was born out of a time of extreme isolation and highlights the visceral need of humans for physical contact. LoVid created these “digital hug simulations” from home recordings of hugs made by friends, along with a range of technological tools. The artwork highlights relationships between family, friends, and lovers; each animation is a unique portrait.
