A video jockey (VJ), is a performance artist who composes and mixes video in real-time usually in tandem with music. VJs typically spin their wares at concerts, night-clubs and festivals and are thus highly focused on providing real-time entertainment value. VJ artists have traditionally used standard projection screens to showcase their talent. However, VJs are rapidly branching out into non-traditional display medium including transparent screens, 3D mapping and integration with other forms of lighting.
The following is a list of all the VJ artists doing video mapping that I could find. I will add more to this blog as I go.
AntiVJ is a European based collective of artists with a focus on projection and light. Their blog features a huge selection of projection based vj work.

HC Gilje is currently pursuing a three year fellowship at the National Academy of the Arts in Bergen (KHIB). He has developed a variety of interesting technical art pieces and production tools. His work on creating mechanical woodpeckers is particularly interesting.
He has created an interesting 3d projection mapping pieces utilizing 12 wooden boxes.
He has also released some tools to help with 3d projection mapping, created using Max/Msp and Jitter.
