Screen Play

Here's the VJ RABBI show reel from about five years ago.

This is a transcript of the screen/writing/play going on in the video:

But what about the Unreal?

With out the Unreal,

there is no Real.

His Moving Visual Thinking

Performs a narrative function.

This function is to improvise

a digital dreamwork always in process.

To become a theory-to-be.

Ad nauseum.

Add nausea.

Add museum.

[add musing...]

VJ Persona is an i.d. entity

forever in search of meaning

[add musing...]

He uses his hyperimprovisationally constructed

fictional memory as source material.

[add musing...]

This proactively constructed fictional memory

is performed as digital flux persona.

Does it happen in realtime?


U n r e a l time?

Without unrealtime,

there is no realtime.

How about timeless time?


For what?

The important thing is

to annihilate the important thing.

The important thing is a feeling.

The important thing is Losing Sight of Yourself

so you can find yourself again.

The important thing is to use experience

as base for knowledge-invention.

The important thing is to remix

digital flux persona.

The important thing is

to outthink premeditation.

The important thing is to proactively

situate the artificial intelligentsia

in the networked space of

performative flows

so as to prompt wild mutations of

bodily lust

just within reach of the collective unconscious...






The elliptical nomad,

VJ persona.

IN the images?

Are they bio-images?

Do these images actually think?

Do they hallucinate other images?

When I say “this is VJ Persona,

streaming my digital flux identity,”

who is the “I” and

who is the “my”?

Whose story is it?

Machinic story on

machinic time?


My Life As A First Person

Digital Flux Persona.

A VJ theory-to-be.

What You See Is What You Get.

What You See Is What You Get.

What You Get Is Simultaneously

Cinematic and Pixilated.

What You Transgress

Is Video Art.

What You Pint Back To

Is Video Art.

What You Refrain From Repeating

Is Video Art.

What You Do IS

Change The Way You See.

What What You Steer Clear of

Is Conceptual Art.

What You Reinvent

Is Beauty As A Subliminal Force In Consciousness.

What You Avoid

Is Theorizing Your Practice To Death.


The concept of UNREALTIME has been permeating my work for about seven years now. It began seeping into my thinking with the blur-motion remix style of FILMTEXT, was articulated in my spontaneous artist theories in META/DATA, and will come to the foreground in my upcoming retrospective exhibition in Athens that includes the European premiere of Immobilité.
