Rural Electrification is simultaneously: harsh, delicate, playful, and apocalyptic. The installation includes 10 foot tall electrical towers shimmering in a field of chaotic black and white video patterns. The surreal experience is enhanced by the fact that the towers are made of paper and hovering slightly above the floor. The electronic components are LoVid's handmade synthesizer, which is creating the live video component of the installation. In their work they combine handmade engineering and craft. In "Rural Electrification" they combine handmade and mechanized production techniques.
