Last First Thursday VIDEA held an open house at their 666 S. Jackson St. studio in the Chinatown-International District. Visual artists VJ Tasara, Joseph Gray and VJ Scobot (three of six members), were working on video mixing, VJing, and projection mapping, filling the space with live visuals of light rhythms and color filled shapes. They had visitors throughout the night consisting of friends, friends of friends, and people just curious as they walked by the pulsing light spilling out of the windows at 666 S. Jackson. Check out the video below for a few clips from the open house visual jam.
The VIDEA studio is a place where these live visual artists work together to create projects and events, and educate and promote the art of Live Visual Performance using the latest in real-time animation, live video mixing techniques and other new visual technologies. Combined, they have over 30 years of experience performing live visuals, creating video installations, teaching video techniques, and producing video content for corporate events. They believe that in order for Live Visual Performance to grow and evolve in Seattle, the way it has in other parts of the world, there needs to be a center of knowledge and community.
