(Roxana T. Barraza Domínguez)
Vj Thai is an independent visual artist that experiments with mixed media, specializing in realtime video creation & manipulation as a performance in situ. The main character is the visual projections, created from the composing and mixing of her recordings, photographs, motion graphics, and marvelous samples from her very own videolibrary, created with images from her everyday experience with life.
As an audiovisual creator VjThai works on a conceptual level, more than just eyecandy! Through improvisation & generative processes, creates layers of content and connections of ideas through images & rhythm, which have a cinematic feeling and are full of musical intuition. There are unique moments of visual composition, that aim to live a seed of love in your heart.
