We are asking for contributions
to a broader description of VJing and realtime interaction.
Looking forward to hearing what your perceptions of these practices
The call sent by e-mail:
We would like to have a broader description of VJing and realtime
interaction to add to the existing one. Rather than reifying a single
definition we would prefer individual perspectives. So we are asking
you to send us an e-mail back with your personal description of
VJing or/and realtime interaction. This description can be a short
paragraph or even a single sentence, an image (600X400, jpeg max)
or a small video (send us the link to the video hosted on the Internet
together with an image to link to from our website). We will put
all contributions on VJTheory.net. Each contribution should be accompanied
with your name, e-mail address and website. Please feel free to
send this to anyone who you think might come up with a good idea.
Realtime interaction is a generic definition for interactive installation
art and for other events such as VJing where the moment and time
(and sometimes the space) define the work. Audio, visual and physical
elements and also the public are involved in the event in different
ways. VJing it's the action of mixing visuals in a live/performance
environment such as a club.
