SWR: TMC Revisited

Chambers revisits his photodocumentary project, Southwest of Rusape: The Mucharambeyi Connection through appropriation of four of its images by utilizing frames/marquee (Web mechanics) and 3D software (kinetic) to move the original (conventional/static) project to another level via digital (e) treatment. The inclusion - in a new media way - of African ornaments/symbols breaks the original 2D plane for an unexpected look/view, and adds an additional cultural element.
