About Antivj | http://www.antivj.com/
ANTIVJ is a visual label initiated by a group of European artists whose work is focused on the use of projected light and its influence on our perception. Clearly stepping away from standard setups & techniques, Antivj presents live performances and installations, providing to the audience a senses challenging experience.
Antivj was originally created by Yannick Jacquet, Joanie Lemercier, Olivier Ratsi and Romain Tardy around 2006. Thomas Vaquié has been composing music for most projects since 2008, with visual artist/creative coder Simon Geilfus joining in in 2009. The label was co-directed by Joanie Lemercier and Nicolas Boritch until 2010, and is since then being managed by Nicolas Boritch.
About Electric Objects | http://www.electricobjects.com/
There's more art on the Internet than in every gallery and museum on Earth.
But many of these beautiful objects are trapped. They’re trapped inside of devices like our phones, our tablets, our TVs, our laptops - devices designed for distraction, living between texts, tweets, football games and emails from work.
So we wanted to make a new way to bring art from the Internet into your home. Introducing EO1, a computer designed to bring the beauty of the Internet into your home.
