subpixel is a video artist / VJ / visualist from Sydney. He spent a year living in London and tripping about Europe occasionally, and is now returned home and getting more involved in the local VJ scene (what local scene?... Doing something about that!).
subpixel is also a web developer, programmer, part-time loungeroom philosopher, and generally all-’round nice guy.
"For a long time I’ve been interested in graphics and visuals. Since 2006 I’ve been supplying visuals for gigs, parties, and home entertainment, drawing on material I’d produced (both consciously and subconsciously) before even thinking I would be a ‘VJ’ - taking photos and little videos thinking they “might be interesting as visuals” - and new material from an ongoing development process with custom effects, video, graphics, animation, etc.
"Much of the VJ material I’ve seen involves short loops, typically fast-paced, highly processed and/or computer generated video clips and animations. Something like a truck bearing down on you in a tunnel with multicoloured strobe lights and laser beams for headlights (I feel sorry for anyone with photosensitive epilepsy). Okay, maybe that’s a bit harsh, and these kind of visuals have their place, but they don’t really suit a lot of the music I like to listen to, so a lot of the visuals I make are more ‘organic’, have some sort of progression or journey, tidbits of real life, places, people… more of a dreamscape than a train smash."
