Hi, I am Dominik (domj), a multi disciplinary artist and software engineer, here to present:

Schéma is a multipurpose framework and visual authoring tool aimed at physical and virtual AV installations - I call it an Integrated Creative Environment.

Interface with light fixtures, Arduinos, OSC, generate visuals, audio and more. Use standalone or integrate via source into vvvv gamma projects.

It offers an experimentation friendly live environment with fast scene, behavior and interaction authoring.

The interface combines elements from visual programming, VJing, light console tools with a number of innovations such as visual controller feedback. In general I am aiming for a game like feel with instant feedback where you can get lost in the creative experience.

I have been working on this tool since 2019. It has been used in a number of public projects - installations, clubs, performances and countless small experiments, see for a taste.

The tool is open source and built from the ground up using vvvv gamma (VL) - it is a visual programming tool, itself made in a visual programming tool!

This presentation will showcase Schéma itself, the philosophy behind it and the user interface and case studies.

If you want to try it for yourself ahead of them, head over to and get yourself a pay-what-you-want copy!
Or just catch me during/after the talk
