Introduction His work has been defined as digital arts; his interest for innovative technology has grown greatly throughout the years, integrating his developed drawing skills with 21 century advanced technology. Soiza is interested in developing his digital drawing skills further and in order to do so he has undertaken a subject matter of interest, which will challenge his talents and benefit his exploration within the use of digital applications. Soiza’s current subject matter is based on the way people perceive everyday objects and their emotional interactions towards them. His current work originated from a book titled ‘The New Philanthropists’ by Charles Handy & Elizabeth Handy. Soiza’s aim is to explore the boundaries of digital technology and through this illustrate given objects as digital representation and reveal the value/memory of the objects to the viewer.
