By using more less the same clips than the vj set, I’ll do a live mapping project.

L’Aubaine (Laurie Bender) VJ, visual artist from Geneva based in London.
L’Aubaine started performing live visuals in 2005 while studying a master in Digital Arts in Barcelona. From her study she got interested in real-time performances and exploring different forms of narrative. And since she expresses herself through VJing, AV narrative, mapping and more recently leds installations.
All elements she uses in her work are self-produced, mixing different techniques, analogue and digital, as hand-drawn animations, illustration, typography, photography, graphical elements and videos. Her creations have that handmade feel, imperfect, bold and very colourful. In her VJ sets, she feels like a painter on his canvas, creating evolving compositions live. She crafted her unique style over the years by superimposing layers, interlinking shapes and colours, mixing elements from different techniques in an unusual and elegant way.
In her AV narrative or Live Cinema projects, she expresses socio/politics/psychological concerns such as immigration, urbanisation and also travelling as a metaphor of an inner quest. She collaborates with producers/musicians for AV projects, live visuals, music videos and graphic design nowadays mainly with Basilar Records.
Since 2015, she is part of VJ London, organising the monthly meet-up & showcase with artists based in the London area and international artists.
L’Aubaine played in several festivals and events in Europe such as, Le Zoo (Geneva), Off Signal (Prague), LPM (Amsterdam, Rome, Eindhoven), Shambala festival (UK), Blissfields festival (UK), Hackney Wicked (London), Knockan Stockan (Ireland), Visual Brasil (Barcelona), Mostra Sonora i Visual (Barcelona), Fundub (Barcelona), Festival Femelek (Barcelona), etc… and some of her videos were also shown in festivals and exhibitions such as Festival Vertical (Spain), Mostra Arte Digital, Caixa Forum (Barcelona), Festival Internacional de la Imagen (Colombia).
