Verbindingen / Jonctions 7

The lining of forgetting

Imagine someone who uses digital means to produce sound or visual creations.

What are his/her choices on a technical level? in terms of collective or individual work? Where does s/he place her body in relation to this technology, does s/he show it, hide it? Is s/he a thief, a collector, an author, a dancer, a copier ? What are his/her choices for circulation : broadcasting, on line, on stage, via the public ? What contracts does s/he have with the public, within the group ? What are their sources : meetings, chance meetings, corresponding, accidents ?

VJ7 was an attempt to seize bodily these questions and desires. This was an unstable mix which was attractive for those who accept dialogue and experiment.
