VJ Conference 2.0 is a video live demonstration that borrows the vision, mission and core values (statement of purpose) from the website of the National Arts Council about Singapore’s goals on the arts and culture industry. The texts of the statement are visualised and mixed on the VJ and DJ equipments that would inevitably make an impression on the audience who most likely have never read it.
