VjVjj ; experimental digital media

 

Davis Heslep, a.k.a. VjVjj is a Yellowknife based Cinematographer and Media Artist.  His technical and creative abilities have resulted in several independent film projects and landed him the current position as Technical Director at Western Arctic Moving Pictures.

Throughout the years, NÀHGĄ and VjVjj have collaborated on several projects and performances, and have most recently taken part in the northern circumpolar Art Arctica 2016 festival in Helsinki, Finland representing Canada as an audio-visual duo.

VjVjj has worked with numerous musical groups, and is constantly expanding his knowledge of hardware, software and programs such as MAX MSP, Jitter and Modul 8.  His aesthetic of utilizing old video mixers in contemporary ways bridges the gap between retro-grade visualizations and cutting-edge new media.
