MEDIATEK (article first published : 2000-10-15)

Opening at the main gallery of the NSA Galleries at 18h00 tomorrow (October 15) is a selection of recent multi-media works.

The exhibition, which received BASA Matching Grant Funding, features recent works by this independent Training Centerís most promising students and promises to be a showcase of KZNís hottest young designers. MEDIATEK has a history of producing multi-talented young artists and designers. This results from providing high levels of training and remaining constantly aware of the latest developments in design, software and creative trends.

In recent years MEDIATEK has also become known for experimental digital design work. DGD graduates move directly into the local and international advertising and IT industries where there is an increasingly urgent demand for proficient operators with these skills and abilities.

The exhibition will consist of interactive multimedia work, product design and web design. Exhibited work was subject to an intensive selection process in order to produce this curated collection which forms part of an ongoing synergistic association between Mediatek and the NSA Galleries.

This began in 1996 when Mediatek presented the first digital art exhibition in Durban with the nationwide All Things Digital competition entries being shown at the NSA Gallery. Most recently the NSA website was designed and produced by Ashling McCarthy, one of Mediatek's final-year DGD students.
