    Hi there,

    At this moment I am graduating at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam as a Audiovisual Designer. For my graduation project I am making a video installation about light. This installation is based on my experience as a VJ in my daily life. This installation is for a part a video clip and for a part also a ‘VJ installation’. The are some differences, so is that this video installation is not live, I created my own music based on the sounds of light and I want to make this a real experience in the space it is in.

    Connected to my project I am writing a researchpaper about videoart/installations and vjing. I am myself a vj and I am looking if there any differences or similarities in video art and vjing. I was wondering if there any VJ's / Videoartists who would like to answer some questions I have for my researchpaper.

    You would really help me out!

    When I finish this paper, This will also be published online. But only in dutch, but maybe I will try to translate it to english.

    The questions are the following:

    What is your goal as a VJ?

    In what way do you do your work?

    What is your inspiration?

    Why did you become a VJ? and how?

    Is it your job or hobby? in what way?

    If it is a hobby, what is your dayjob?

    How do you get your gigs?

    Where do you perform? just clubs, or also at musea or other places?

    Is it possible to peform in a museum as a VJ or is it then video art?

    Do you think being a VJ is a way of video art? why?

    Do you think it is art? why?

    Is there now more than vj'ing? has being a VJ evolved into multiple forms?

    Should it still be called Vj'ing?

    Video art is an inspiration for a VJ to create his or her work..
    How do you feel/think about this?

    What is your name / stage name?

    How long are you a VJ?

    Where do you perform?

    Are you a VJ or videoartist? (or both). Or do you have your own definition of your work?
