Samantha Munro recently received her Masters in Fine Art from Rhodes University. She is a practicing artist who works across mediums, often turning to film, animation, sound and interactive media, but usually in consideration of a greater installation, which incorporates sculptural elements, delegated performance, audience participation and site-specificity. Some of her primary concerns are the themes of familiarity, strangeness, voyeurism and dislocation. Munro has been involved in numerous collaborative projects both in the Main programme as well as the Fringe program of the National Arts Festival. Recently, one such collaborative project with Rat Western and Wesley Dientje, entitled Machine For Living (2014) received the Standard Bank Silver Ovation Award. Her MFA supervisors were Prof Tom Martin (theory) and Rat Western (practice).
