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.
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.
