Alien Philosophy

2011, 5:15 min, color, sound

In what the artists term a "video collage noise composition," LoVid uses paper cut stencils and raw electrical signals to produce a stunning strobe-like audiovisual effect. In line with much of their video and performance work, Alien Philosophy investigates the tension between organic and inorganic with visual patterns reminiscent of abstracted eyes and bodies. The piece also questions the meanings of analogue and DIY and the potential for "interference" between media (video and cut paper), exposing the labor of alteration—another layer of interference—and the complicity of destruction in the act of creation.
