Jem about her Talk: “For scope sessions I will present a selection of projects from 2012 that range from large scale festival VJing to new AV collaborations, as well as the strange world of VJ competitions. Through these projects I will give some insight into my background and work process and discuss how the immediacy of Vjing and the processes of improvisation and performance have been useful techniques in the development of new ideas.”
