As digital technology has profoundly changed the way people communicate and interact with each other, there is a need to also change the way in which advertising communicates with its audience.

Uncanny Arts and the Aesthetics of Cybernetic-Existentialism
Prof Steve Dixon
Uncanny' works by a number of contemporary artists are analysed in relation to the themes and insights of both cybernetics and existentialist philosophy. This reveals that central ideas from these largely neglected fields remain current and potent within innovative art practices. Artists employ cybernetic systems to provoke aesthetic sensations of the uncanny, while simultaneously encapsulating existentialist concerns....

The Report of the Advisory Council on Culture and the Arts
Audrey Wong Wai Yen
The Report of the Advisory Council on Culture and the Arts (ACCA) released in 1989, is widely seen as the signature document which laid the path for Singapore’s arts development in the late 20th century. It can also be seen as a logical offshoot of the Singapore government’s economic strategy which had undergone a serious review in the wake of the recession of 1985....

Craft and Culture, Changing the Global Dialog of Fashion
"Fashion content has in recent years become an open access for all to comment and contribute, becoming a language of ambiguity, fixed in rigid social and cultural roles. For many years now, it has been described by many theorists, sociologists as a complex language.
With recent advancements, we need to acknowledge the changes surrounding the language of fashion in a global interactive context....
We accept that fashion is a complex system of ambiguities and even more with the developments in media technologies, fast fashion, and consumerism on the rise has created a new generation of fashion storytellers, image-makers, and curators that produce and share a pastiche of perspectives. These communicators provided the world with uninterrupted white noise, highlighting the discourse of fashion language and its many shifting values. The intent of fashion is two-fold: both informative and communicative. An audience must know what the communicator means to convey where garments are being translated from foreign perspectives and meanings something. Society needs to question the aspect of communication in these times of change, keeping in mind it is not relied upon being fully understood. In the East, we look to the West to be informed and attempt to translate the creativity into a language that we do not fully grasp, re-communicating it as a foreigner. With this research, I aim to examine the power of social media influence on fashion and how it is generating a disjuncts fashion language, the loss of knowledge and heritage across time and space, subsequently creating a local voice through craft and culture changing the global dialog of fashion."
