Screening and reception afterwards
VJ : Live Cinema Unraveled is one of the first books to offer a fresh perspective of VJing and VJ culture. Probing into topics such as technological mobility, audience, environment, and codes of the medium, it explains the various dimensions of this emerging practice. Part design, speculative theory, reference and practical guide, this book links live cinema with its historical origins, and then describes the various offshoots and branches that are occurring now in the twenty-first century on a global scale.
