VJ Art

Michael Fawkner, ed.,
Audio-visual art and VJ Culture,
large format paperback + DVD,
Laurence King

One area of art that has been developing over recent times is the art of the VJ. The development of reasonably cheap tools has spurred things on just as it has with music and amateur movie making, although movie making for a bigger screen is still an expensive business.

This book goes through a comprehensive list of VJs from an assortment of geographical areas. There are examples of their works as stills in the book as well as DVD where you can get a better idea of what's going on. Needless to say, being a Laurence King book, the presentation is very well done.

Another interesting aspect is that there are pages of setup and equipment information. which might inspire a few people to get out there and do the next bit.

You can see some excerpts here.
