    About Upgrade! Johannesburg
    About once per month a group of new media students, artists and
    curators gather in Johannesburg, South Africa. At each meeting one or
    two artists present work - theirs, or a favorite's - in order to
    foster critique, dialogue and collaboration in our growing digital
    arts scene. The Upgrade! Joburg grew out of Professor Christo
    Doherty's (WSOA Digital Arts; Map ) regular Friday 'Digital Soirees'
    at Wits School of the Arts, and artist Nathaniel Stern's atjoburg
    initiative, both founded between 2002/3 and still ongoing. They
    wanted to invite a larger, participative audience into their space,
    and be plugged into a more diverse and international network. Our
    first official Upgrade! featured Daniel Hirschmann, a South African
    Wits alumnus who alsostudied at NYU's Interactive Telecommunications
    Program, and went on to help shape the Physical Computing studio at
    Fabrica. At number two, Stern presented MTAA's brilliant work
    remotely (with their permission), rather fitting given their initial
    involvement in the first NYC Upgrades....
