Research into how a new form of technology contributes to the preservation of traditional forms of visual arts earned Mr Melikhaya Noqamza, a bachelor of Visual Arts (honours) at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. Noqamza, a staff member at the Centre for Visual Art (CVA), research delved into Augmented Reality (AR) – a relatively new technology that allows digital content to be overlaid on the real world.
