A WORK IN PROGRESS
THE PANOPTICA - ST. JOHN FULLER
The Panoptica dome, designed and constructed by St.John Fuller, is currently under construction at NIROX. The artist describes the Panoptica as a "coming together of maths, science and art - a geodesic dome formed of hundreds of camera obscuras."

The dome is a work that thrives on interactions. As a result, the artist encourages the public to ask him any questions they may have about the dome on his various social platforms.

MARGINS OF ERROR
WINTER SCULPTURE EXHIBITION | PUBLIC OPENING
The 'Margins of Error' Winter Sculpture Exhibition officially opened to the public on the 8th and 9th of May with a promise that it would be a memorable experience for all attendees. Artworks remained on display as visitors enjoyed a bountiful program filled with food, curated walkabouts, exclusive performances and film screenings. 
PERFORMANCES 
The overall experience of the artworks was heightened by the nature-inspired melodies emanating from the JPO ('Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra') ensembles situated within the park. Each sound, rhythm and tone brought the sculpture park to life, reminding us of the beauty of our surroundings.
As the day progressed, guests were treated by an exclusive, acoustic performance by Msaki and Tubatsi Mpho Moloi that filled the park with soothing harmonies that seemed impossible to ignore. 
Although this event has come to an end, visitors can view the exhibition at NIROX until the end of July 2021. Come and encounter a space where 'margins of error' are celebrated and acknowledged.
