AntiVJ is a visual label

ANTIVJ is a visu­al label ini­ti­at­ed by a group of Euro­pean artists whose work is focused on the use of pro­ject­ed light and its influ­ence on our per­cep­tion. Clear­ly step­ping away from stan­dard setups & tech­niques, AntiVJ presents live per­for­mances and instal­la­tions, pro­vid­ing to the audi­ence a sens­es chal­leng­ing expe­ri­ence.

YesYesNo — Night Lights

In this instal­la­tion YesYesNo teamed up with The Church, Inside Out Pro­duc­tions and Elec­tric Can­vas to turn the Auck­land Fer­ry Build­ing into an inter­ac­tive play­ground. The job was to cre­ate an instal­la­tion that would go beyond mere­ly pro­jec­tion on build­ings and allow view­ers to become per­form­ers, by tak­ing their body move­ments and ampli­fy­ing them 5 sto­ries tall. We used 3 dif­fer­ent types of inter­ac­tion — body inter­ac­tion on the two stages, hand inter­ac­tion above a light table, and phone inter­ac­tion with the track­ing of wav­ing phones. There were 6 scenes, cycled every hour for the pub­lic.

Ze Frank: My web playroom

On the web, a new “Friend” may be just a click away, but true con­nec­tion is hard­er to find and express. Ze Frank presents a med­ley of zany Inter­net toys that require deep par­tic­i­pa­tion — and reward it with some­thing more nour­ish­ing.
