VANCOUVER – The Digital Technology and Culture Program at WSU Vancouver presents multimedia artists Julie Andreyev and Simon Lysander Overstall, talking about VJ Fleet, an interactive sound and video installation involving a fleet of customized cars. Their performance will be at 5 p.m. Nov. 22 in front of the WSU Vancouver Administration Building. This event is free and open to the public.
VJ Fleet is acollaboration between the two artists in residence and students in the D TC program at WSU Vancouver. Video and audio representation of site, space and location in the city are interwoven with aspects of audiovisual representation that take their motivation from popular culture, specifically car culture and club culture.
VJ Fleet has technology that allows cars to record information from the city streets as they drive from WSU Vancouver to Grand Central and finally to North Bank Artists Gallery. Images and sounds produced by viewers at each of these sites are also incorporated.
Students in the class are also posting a daily dairy describing the development of the project at http://www.vjfleet.org.
