Research / interview for Essay about Videoart / video installations / Vjing !
At this moment I am graduating at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam as a Audiovisual Designer. For my graduation project I am making a video installation about light. This installation is based on my experience as a VJ in my daily life. This installation is for a part a video clip and for a part also a ‘VJ installation’. The are some differences, so is that this video installation is not live, I created my own music based on the sounds of light and I want to make this a real experience in the space it is in.
Connected to my project I am writing a researchpaper about videoart/installations and vjing. I am myself a vj and I am looking if there any differences or similarities in video art and vjing. I was wondering if there any VJ's / Videoartists who would like to answer some questions I have for my researchpaper.
You would really help me out!
When I finish this paper, This will also be published online. But only in dutch, but maybe I will try to translate it to english.
