Roz Dimon is a transplanted southerner to New York City who has been painting with a digital brush for over 30 years after her oil paintings began to fill with pixels. She is the creator of a new form of art and storytelling which she recently spoke about at a Conference on immersive New Media at Yale University’s CCAM.
A recent commission by The Children’s Museum of Long Island during COVID featured an interactive work she co-created with Latinx children working entirely via ZOOM and was supported by grants from the NEA, NYSFA and IMLS. Another museum commission entailed taking 300 years of history and making it into a single work of art whose story is accessible by all with an iPHONE or iPAD.
Dimon has a piece in the permanent collection of The 9/11 Memorial Museum and is a member of the Carter Burden Gallery in Chelsea, New York City.
Her work was recently featured in one of the first curated shows of NFTs called “NFT NOW” and she has a solo show of her LINCOLN series opening summer 2021.

LoVid, the ny based artist duo composed of Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus, has worked together since 2001. LoVid’s work centers around the juxtaposition of media and material, physicality and virtuality. LoVid’s practice incorporates a wide range of techniques and processes, from electrical engineering to textile design and stained glass.
Throughout multiple projects, LoVid’s maintains a signature visual and sonic aesthetic of color, pattern, and texture density, incorporating glitch and noise. LoVid’s process: navigating between the handmade and the machine-produced, highlights the challenges and possibilities of the networked age, particularly a sense of the world that intermixes virtual and physical, materials and simulations, fantasy and reality, hope and despair, connectivity and isolation.

I am a creative radiologist and founder of radiology-art.com. My aim is to establish and spread Radiology Art as a new branch of modern digital art. My work focuses on computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging datasets from fruits, things or real animals and humans which i post-process and edit by means of dedicated modied radiology softwares. Radiology Art fascinates me as it combines colorful moments of pop art, surrealism, abstract art, stilllife and realistic body world art. I also have a long-standing background in scientific radiology with 121 publications including the New England Journal of Medicine.

Techspressionist Salons are bi-weekly artist meetups where artists can present their work and discuss matters relating to art and technology. They are attended by artists listed in our Techspressionist Visual Artists Index and are also open to interested individuals on our mailing list. The First Techspressionist Salon was held on September 1, 2020, and included artists Colin Goldberg, Patrick Lichty, Steve Miller and Oz Van Rosen, as well as group advisor Helen Harrison. During this session, the working definition of Techspressionism was decided upon by the participants as: “An artistic approach in which technology is utilized as a means to express emotional experience.”
