I developed this edition of \\VECTOR during an Artist Recidency in Rio de Janeiro (Br) for Rio Mapping Festival 2017 where I was greatly inspired by the Music of John Mecalfe.

“As live visual performers, we bring our tools, which are basically just a set of rules, a composition or a method which enables us to work live. (…) I use VJ as an umbrella term for most of my work, it’s not necessarily referring to video, so even when I find myself welding sculptures. For me, it feels all the same: Creating content, content to work with, live.”
“As a VJ I’m not only in dialogue with the music and the audience but also with the space. My material to work with is projected video content, where the video content exists on the surface: the function of the surface is to carry information. With \\VECTOR I try to work from the inside out, from the sculpture, outwards”
