SHOWCASE: 6:30 PM to late, March 24th

The DIGITAL SALON showcase event begins at 6:30 PM with presentations of new Digital Media from around SA, and profiles of some regional digital media makers. A multi-projector installation will transform the institute into an exciting display of media art.

Live link ups to other digital media makers will occur during the event, and people who can’t attend in person will be able to view some of the work streaming online. (Although it will not be as dramatic as the live multimedia display itself)
