I have been working with illuminations, or projected light for more than 10 years. I started using only Photoshop, doing freehand drawings onto dancers and performers. I'm using a more complex setup now, live video mixing in VDMX with MIDI-controlled effects and audio triggers.
I'm enticed by layers of light, and the narratives they create. Beyond the music, the people, dancers and performers are the main influence with what happens with the visuals.
We celebrated our one-year anniversary on May 10th!
Every Thursday evening in Berkeley, we create a dance with great music and visuals. It’s a trippy, playful and uplifting experience. We've been doing this for a year now, and it keeps getting better and brighter. It's also an all-volunteer community-oriented event. We support the principles of a gift-based economy, and the event is always free of charge.
