Curated by the interdisciplinary artist-duo LoVid (Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus), Flipped Chips pairs the work of pioneering video artists who built their own A/V hardware with the work of a younger generation now doing the same. In the 1970s, artists built hardware instruments in an era of idealism, with the hope their technological advancements would elicit widespread cultural and social change. Today, artists reared in the subsequent “media revolution” return to the tools of their predecessors, inspired by noise, glitch, and hacker culture, as well as the fragility, unpredictability, and limitations of technology and its attendant dreams. Program includes Heart Beat (1970, Bill Etra); Soundgated Images (1974, Steina and Woody Vasulka); Union (1975, Stephen Beck); A Tale of Two Cities (1992, Nam June Paik and Paul Garrin); Spiral 5 PTL (1981, Dan Sandin); Ambient Dance (1986, Jim Wiseman, excerpt); Lumpy Banger (1986, Matthew Schlanger); Rex (2005, Karl Klomp); Yuppster Video (2003, Jon Satrom; Tea w/ Gallactus (2005, noteNdo); Cyclopsii (2006, LoVid); Bye Bye One (2006, NotTheSameColor [billy roisz + dieb13]); Synthcart (2006, Paul Slocum, 2006); Super Mario Movie (2005, Cory Arcangel [beige] and Paper Rad); and special live performances by LoVid and Jon Satrom. 1970–2007, various directors, USA, ca. 120 min, various formats.
