Put up a little EYE WASH mov on our website from the first night. It's too dark to see the space properly, but you can see a bit of my set on the screens and hear people commenting. Click (http://www.FORWARDmotiontheater.org) on the "view the movie" link on the front page (QT5 required, 4.8MB, ~1min,20sec). Thanks to everyone who came out! We'll see you next week!

April 2nd line up includes:
Missy Galore fresh from the Water Water Festival where this rainbow-haired cutie has been activating awareness of our most precious and threatened natural resource.... She's cranking a drool-worthy Edirol P-7 Presenter among loads of other equipment.
Lu(x)z of Amoeba Technologies grinds up lush textural static. Originally from Argentina she's been cruising the very underground, edgy and independant Williamsburg Wherehouse scene with parties like the conceptual INVOLUTION series. (Haven't scene her rig yet, but at the last Involution I was impressed to see her abandon the 4:3 box and shape screens like architectural columns and overhanging eaves.
And me (Holly) with all original animations and bluescreen characters mixed through the V-4. I think I got this puppy down and I'm risking it all by flying on instruments only..., no monitor (*gasp*). Believe me I've got hastily scribbled crib notes and serious myopia, so it's more risky than you might think!:p
Address is above. 9pm to 1am. Thanks for the support!

Just a reminder that the next installment of Eye Wash is this Wednesday,
9p-1am at Freight (address below). The last Eye Wash was a spectacular
event. We had all three VJs on different screens around the room for the
first hour and then went into individual sets for the rest of the night. Good crowd, great vibe. Seeing the styles juxtaposed was a real eye opener to the power of visuals and video art!? Please be sure to come out and see the new lineup.
Here's the line up for this week--
Paul Clay (fictive.net): Paul's been doing festivals and clubs in New York for years, including his sometimes monthly INTERPOL parties. I last saw him at 38-Nine, an artsy space in Queens that doubles as a movie rental house by day. We were dancing in a soundstage designed to look like a back alley until the cops came knocking and we had to make a hasty escape out the back exit.... Check out his website, lots of ideas from this old-timer.
Mike Taylor (Mixed Mess@ge): She (yes, she) has done everything from live installations about porn to designing the video+sound pieces for performing companies at the Kennedy Center in DC. Always a wild card, she promised me an installation of existential interviews in the shower, but a late April snow last week changed her mind and she's got a new idea about chaotic texture on the pristine, static in the signal, snow in Spring. She'll definitely make you go "hmmmm...."
MOSTRA (gabriela MOnroy y kasbah STRAcke): I'm especially looking forward to this collaboration. Casper Stracke I know by reputation for his eye-bending animations created live with organicly evolving software (kinda like ice crystals forming under a microscope). It'll be exciting to see if how collaborator Gabriela Monroy injects a little soul into his sometimes sterile/perfect creations....
triggerMotion (www.merj.com): You already know him as ecin here at VJF, as a media designer and programmer, and as the denizen of the contraversial "dirty warehouse". He's packing it up with his partner and heading down to NYC to pop some retinal capillaries. Yay, new friends met through VJC! (Did anyone notice that ecin is "nice" spelled backwards...?)
Eye Wash is just what you need to cleanse your corneas and revitalize your
retinas.? This series is a relaxed and social cocktail atmosphere in a
bar/restaurant equipped with plasma screens,CRTs, and video projectors. You
can enjoy mixed video, meet VJs and video artists, and converse with others
interested in watching and discussing the latest in live video art.?
410 West 16th Street (bet 9th and 10th Ave)
9pm to 1am, April 2, 16, and 30
subway: A,C,E, or L train to 14th Street and 8th Avenue
bus: M11 or M14 to 15th Street and 9th Avenue

Looking forward to seeing you there...

thanx to holly for having us at Eye-Wash last night. it was cool to meet everyone and see the different tools people were using. i especially dug MOSTRA with their hacked open laserdisc player. Freight is an awesome venue with plenty of plasma screens and space for projection. heres some flix from the night, i'm not too sure whos set this was, i think it was Mike Taylor:

Big thanks to Ecin for bringing triggerMotion to Eye Wash. Last time was a really fun night and it's starting to get a little crowded (at least at the peak of the night). Not bad for a VJ-only event. Yay!
Paul Clay did some fun stuff with cameras, Mike Taylor did strange things with gorgeous static and sock puppets:confused: , and Kasbah Stracke brought in this funky old CED videodisc player that did its own scratching while his partner Gabriela added some Keystroke fx. TriggerMotion's look was pure techno and very clean. Thanks everybody!!!
I put up a new video (.mov) on our site that shows some of the vjs in action from the various nights and their work on the screens. Check it out here (http://www.forwardmotiontheater.org/Works/EyeWash/index.html) .

April 30th line-up includes:
Honeygun Labs ? Bec and her crew of media designers were featured in a New York Times article about the VJ scene a few months back. You can catch Bec regularly as the curator/hostess of Video Grindhouse in Williamsberg where she shows new video art works and a/v mixes. She's about the cutest VJ I've ever met. Expect her to go all out for this one.
?electric violence+ ? From Detroit with Techno, and a resume longer than my arm, ?ev+ has been touring the international club and circuit scene for ten years serving visual power to legendary djs Junior Vasquez, Joey Beltram, Sandra Collins, and too many others to list. He's taking break from the glamorous life of Barcelona Beaches to show us how it's done. Actually s/Sean is about the nicest guy I've ever met, very encouraging and supportive to the whole scene!
[disneyNASAborg] ? This is one artboy who refuses to be pegged into any specific media format. He backs up his vivid multi-media creations with street-style graffitti on shimmering transparent canvases for dazzlingly futuristic installations that are at once hard-edged and exquisitely airy. He's showing all new VJ work this time out, and has something special planned in collaboration with dj Zemi17.
I hope to see you there!
