This page records legacy video work from the naughties when I used to create video works and VJ.
I realise now anyone with an iPhone can the right app an do much better video editing work but back then it was different. (keep checking because as I write this in 2017 In will produce new work).
I started making videos when I was studying at University to document my work and to create video art as I was inspired by Bill Viola and Pipilotti Rist. At the same time I was also part of the Montreal club scene and I remember I also became more involved as a promoter and learnt a lot about what made the atmosphere for a good party. I then started using my visuals for parties and became involved as a VJ at SAT doing nights with Jan Pienkowsy. I started VJing professionally as VJ Fluid from 2004 to 2006 in various clubs in Montreal and also traveled to perform in New York ,Mexico City and then eventually in London.
I don’t have much material left from that time but I here are is video loops I found.
Some videos I’ve done early naughties…
PLACENTA (self portrait)
This video was shot in Montreal in the outdoor heated swimming pool at night. I remember it was snowing outside…
This is one of my video portraits of my friend Noriko.
WAR IS NOT THE ANSWER
RECENT UPDATE Dec. 10, 2017
I finally did visuals again after a very long time at Night Sheen I experimented by projected onto the ceiling as the space was tight. I paid tribute Paris Is Burning remembering the iconic movie that more than 25 years later. I only have this 25 second vid but here you go… it was great fun!
