The AIR meeting was held on Monday 12th of May 2008 at 2 pm at the Playroom in the Communications and New Media Faculty at NUS. It was a time where the artists already in Singapore could meet up with ISEA committee members, and also to mingle with each other in a light-hearted setting over wine and cheese. A quick brief by AIR director Dr Lonce Wyse was followed by each artist giving an introduction to their work.
