About

JAPJAN_VJ_Rotterdam_Dancing
Original film material by: Lara Arnoldus for Eendrachtfestival Pre-party

Rotterdam based artists Marèl Jap-Sam and Janneke Meekes met each other in Art school, where Marèl studied Audiovisual and Janneke Animation. Both where exploring ways to create moving images by using printmaking, photocopies and other analogue techniques. In 2013 they teamed up under the name ‘JAPJAN’.
JAPJAN stands for fun, graphic and colourful sequences used for visuals, videos and installations. In all experiment has the main focus. And when we VJ we love to add some booty-shaking!
