Text-Jockey, 2003

For the theatre play Ääärrgh! A Loss in Transl(oc)ation , together with z25.org I developed a textual VJ machine, the Text-Jockey. Instead of mixing images, Text-Jockey is an application with which live written text can be projected and manipulated in real-time. The application can also load and display animations and prewritten texts. Text-Jockey creates an interactive dialogue between the projection and the actors, by letting the projection itself become an actor of the play.
