Bring Your Own Beamer (BYOB) is an open, ephemeric exhibition featuring artists, whose activity focuses on media and technologies. The original formula was conceived in 2010 by Rafaël Rozendaal, a Dutch-Brazilian artist.Rafaël Rozendaal (Berlin 2010).
Everyone can present their works, as for the second time our BYOB will take place within the W-arte! Open Art Space in the Mokotów district. We endorse projections, installations, inventions, A/V live sets, digital presentations and VR materials.
Similarly to the time and space, the VJ’s visuals are subject to real-time post-production,, handed to observers on a plate. Video Jockey “samples” and converts the visual culture heritage. The VJ’s live act is all about images, space and different kinds of aesthetics, represented by filters and fx available in photo mixer-esque software, being remixed or visually reconverted in real time. Thus, the stylistics of live image-mixing isn’t uniform and remains dependable on approach to the post-production process.
“Fake actions/Fatal errors” is a BYOB exhibition carried under the banner of the aesthetics of error and post-production, fulfilling the notion of the “post-internet April Fools’ Day”. We have explored the modus operandi of hacker groups and pictures distorted by the effects stemming from the available PC software and applications. Applications are received up to March 30 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
