Khayelitsha - "New Home"

In December, ArtThrob featured international award winning screensavers on the project page. Turning our focus on South Africa, for February 2001 we present two lively screensavers�created in Flash by Pretoria artist Abrie Fourie, from photographs taken in two very different parts of the world - Khayelitsha, the black township near Cape Town - and New York

MTN Art Institute director Ronel Kellner has this to say about Fourie's work:

    In the screensavers Cloud and�Samaria the artist enacts another creation, a "New Home", divinely inspired but modelled through man. As creator and integral participator, the lens of Fourie's camera broods across the surface. Each frame freezes a moment and captures images which when manipulated are imbued with form and engrafted with new meaning. In the Divine mind, naming and meaning preceded form. In this re-creation metaphors and meaning predestine its form.

Note: As we go live, the screensavers are only usable on PC computers - MAC images will follow in the next few days.
