PURE B & TOY_BOX
How We Do It
The principle of on-the-spot animation and live analog mixing was discovered several years ago for the Czech Vj's scene by the group of visual artists Pure A. Two Dead Police, One for Hope and One for Peace is an outcome of the cooperation between its creators and this Vj group. The working technique of Pure A is different to what the audience is used to seeing from standard Vjs. Vjs conventionally use prefabricated material and video loops that are mixed live during the action; in analog animation most of the visual output is created on the spot. This way of working is naturally reflected in the visual quality, playfulness and unusual poetics of the final production.
Analog Animation is the technical term for visualizations where the major work is not done by the computer. Whilst the Vjs fetish usually lies in not showing the Vj's hands on the screen, the Pure B group let their hands manipulate real objects in front of the camera as part of the story. That means a double show for the audience: they can watch the live adventure of the birth of the projection under the hands of creators, while confronting the output in the projection area.
