Nighttime visual media production in club environments
2008 (English)In: CHI 2008 Proceedings, Workshops: Presented at the Night and darkness: Interaction after dark, 2008Conference paper (Other academic)
We analyze how VJs produce visuals to support DJs in dark and noisy club environments, enhancing the overall experience. We suggest that mobile technologies could improve the interaction between the audience and the VJ. As a first step to the generation of new applications, we tease out some characteristics of VJ production and live performance, which might influence the design of such technologies. We specifically focus on the ways in which VJs interact with the audience and the computer interfaces, as well as how they orient towards specific aesthetical ideals.
