Date: Sunday, November 2, 2003
Time: 12 pm

Julie Andreyev will discuss her two recent vehicular projects. Circuit Van was performed during SWARM 2002 in Vancouver and at Contact Photo Festival 2003 in Toronto. VJ-Fleet, a mobile fleet of VJ (video jockey) vehicles, was performed during the New Forms Festival last summer in Vancouver. Both projects explore possibilities of inserting images into the public sphere using audio/visual vehicles equipped with active video projection screens. In VJ-Fleet, the driver, passenger and the car are expressed in the videos through the use of sensors and software effects. These projects rely on downtown urban traffic and public events as sites for content and audience creation.


Julie Andreyev is a visual artist whose work is influenced by forms within popular entertainment cultures and technologies. Recent projects include; VJ-Fleet performed at the New Forms Festival 2003 in Vancouver; Circuit Van performed at Contact Photo Festival 2003 in Toronto and at Swarm 2002 in Vancouver; DustClouds at the Dunlop Art Gallery in Regina in 2003 and at Gallery 44 in Toronto in 2002.
