What is VJing and realtime interaction

About

This project intends to develop a community actively discussing and reflecting on philosophy and theory related with Vjing and realtime interaction.
It is apparent, during workshops and discussions at Festivals and symposia, that practitioners of both VJing and Interactive Installations will quickly move on from problems with the practicalities of production to more complex ideas of how and why the process has, for example, significance for the viewer.
There is a lack of written texts on the philosophies and theories related with VJing and realtime interaction.
This project and the associated book, aim to bring together work by some of the foremost practitioners and academics in the field.
We aim to produce a body of work which, for the first time, will address these theoretical issues and place the practices of VJing and Interactive Installation, into a useful context.

The website is a growing collection of articles, references and art projects in collaboration with contributors from the book and the growing community.

This is phase 1 of the project. New sample material from the book and complete texts specifically for the site will be available online as the work progresses.
