Tali Hinkis’ textile designs bridge between tactile and digital, in compositions that include brightly colored, electronically produced visuals as well as drawings in ink and oil pastels that mimic the electronic works. Hinkis has been designing textile for her company LoVid’s projects, including sculptures and outfits for over a decade.
The digital imagery in the fabric works originates from LoVid’s video works and handmade video instrument production, which are used in performances and studio recordings. Tali Hinkis’ use of LoVid design brings media from the screen into the physical realm, to engage with and envelop the body through texture and color.
