The name VJ derives from the DJ, the disc jockey, and stands for Visual Jockey. This expression was coined by video artists of the New York club Peppermint Loungein in the late 1970s.

Screens or less conventional projection screens such as cloths or objects visible to an audience. He mixes, creates and alienates video material, creating a rhythmic montage. Here, a symbiosis of music and moving image is sought:
It's about achieving a synergetic effect of sound and video. Here, improvisation plays an important role in which the audience, VJ and DJ influence each other.

The surface is intended to show how even a small muscle movement can affect a large surface, with different structures.
