In the 1990s and early 2000s, Tali Hinkis loved walking around with a video camera. During this time, she was influenced by Sophie Calle, Pipilotti Rist, and Tracey Moffatt’s video HEAVEN.
It was in 2000, when Hinkis first learned to use After Effects and began to reject linear thinking in her editing, that something clicked. She started considering short videos as drawings or paintings and also incorporating loops into VJ sets.
BED, a video of a campy bedspread, is one of those rare videos from that time period that Hinkis managed to digitize and preserve. When she views BED in the present day, Hinkis sees a dark and moody flower contorting itself, a play on young femininity and the burden of its expectations.
