Video Installation "Carpet" by 4youreye Projection Art & Noémi Kiss (AT)

The live visual performance group “4youreye” was set up the early 1990s. The duo started their artistic journey in the Rave, Ambient and Club culture of the 90’s. Their track record of over 15 years includes countless performances in Austria, around Europe and all around the international circuit from Malaysia, Russia, Japan, India and China. The duo stands for fast, hard cuts and unconventional screen sequences, which blow the dust off old images. Ever changing picture collages tune into the music and so create a total experience for the audience. 4youreye prefer to work live, in a real time FX, where music and visuals combine to create a unified experience where music becomes visual. The images used range from computer generated graphics, TV samples and specially shot new footage. The result is a mind-boggling diversity of loops, flashes and transitions that capture the eyeballs of the audience with their visual power. Stories are seen as a never-ending Babylonian Archive of pictures, media, sounds and symbols that can explore the open spaces of the future. 4youreye draw their inspiration from the abstract films of the 1920`s, the experimental films of the 50’s and 60’s, and the rock concerts of the 1970`s as well as the video scratchers of the 1980`s. The duo 4youreye live and work in Vienna / Austria. 4youreye among the top five VJs in the world: In 2008 and 2007 the industry’s top magazine, the London based “DJ-Mag” voted 4youreye into the top 5 VJs in the world ranking. Gery and Eva had risen to these heights after starting at the number 13 slot in 2005. In 2007 the German magazine “De:Bug” voted 4youreye into its VJ top ten. 4youreye came in at number 8.
