Wax - AV Web Performance Software

"WJ-s" is a software and a flexible, high speed connexion public device for web performances which allows actors of the Internet, webjockeys, sound and image artists, netartists, bloggers, graphic designers, flashers, programmers, curators, hacktivists, newmedia theorists, pioneers and web mutants...to play live with the full scope of contents available in the wideness of the web.

The themes of the performances revolve around transmission, communication, dialogue, sharing, open and wide distribution, personal experience, experiments, history, processes and issues of the network. The multiscreens projection system with the wireless laptopring is a reduced model of the internet, a metaphor of its codes and of the way information flows and appears on the network. The WJ-s productions can take many forms : mixes, demonstrations, project presentations, performances... or all these at the same time. The WJ draws inspiration from processes and original actions that are related specifically to the network�s activity. The performances can also fuse with choreographic or vocal interventions, but also with proteiform practices, unidentified and unexpected oddities of all sorts...

WJ-s/essions make it possible to handle online contents (texts, sound, video, animations...) that come directly from the web, this giant hard disk. The widened, shared and liberated opening of context creates a sensitive and lively situation that allows the full potential of scenography, writing, forms, combinations and practices to arise and flourish. The aim of this device is to provide : Full latitude in the setting of the machines, Full latitude in putting together and revealing contents and formats, Full latitude in associating people and confronting different points of view.

The contexts generated in this way develop into mobile spaces of dynamic display and hybridization.
