Visual Artist (VJ)
In high school Josh had a tendency of skipping class and going to the video production room to animate 3d animations on a Video Toaster using Lightwave 3. Since then his passion for video production and post production found its way to making visuals for Init String by using the individual wave files and modulating key frames with After Effects along with other video applications such as Visual Jockey. Init String was the first Texas based electronic act to create and perform their own visuals AND music on stage with live camera inputs absorbing the crowd and dancers back into the whole mix. Along with that Josh started his own VJ project called Digital Orgasm Theater.
He developed his own interactive, live input generated video art installations using a camera, video mixer and painted scrim fabric. These installations made its way to many galleries such asthe Modern Art Museum in Ft. Worth, Tx along with a multitude of electronic music events across the United States with Init String. Since moving to Austin, Tx Josh started doing projection mapping and using Microsoft Kinect platforms to create interactive video projections that can be mapped to objects in real time. See VJ Art.
