On Friday September 23 VJ op de Dom 2011 marked this year’s event from Treaty of Utrecht.
Impakt presented a delightful part of the program, with two true sound- and visual artists.
Producer, DJ, visionary artist, architect and electronic musician Christelle Gualdi is a busy Parisienne. With her music project Stellar OM Source she moved the visitors in a nice trance. It’s hard to resist her feather light beats and hypnotic synthesizer virtuosity. Together with visual artist Ola Vasiljeva she developed a site specific audiovisual performance for the Dom tower. Vasiljeva picks up all kinds of images from pop- and subcultures, pulls them out of context, and gives a lo-fi twist to it with her handmade illustrations. It all results in surprising video art that messes with the mind. For VJ op de Dom, she mashed up images from the Utrecht archive.
