To Whom It May Concern

07 December 2010

To Whom It May Concern: (TWIMC) is an interactive installation which functions as a metaphor for a software application, programmed by Michelle Son, in which the user experience is recreated in a real-time physical space. Having control over the functions and features built into the application, users are invited to step into the programme to explore the features and visual effects by using their sense of smell, touch, sight and sound. Based on the simulated templates of Microsoft Word, users are immersed in a hyper real office environment where the virtual becomes tactile and the template is embellished. Watch the Movie.

Milton Glaser
To Inform & Delight

From newspapers and magazine designs, to interior spaces, logos and brand identities, to his celebrated prints, drawings, posters and paintings, the documentary offers audiences a much richer appreciation for one of the great modern renaissance men.

Undoing is a butoh performance series that explores modes of erasing the individual mind’s claim to the body. This radical point of erasure between object and subject is pursued in order to achieve a quality of emptiness. Once the individual has been eclipsed, the ego silenced, the body will be danced. Undoing will undo itself everyday on the Drostdy Lawns at the National Arts Festival Grahamstown.
