DECEMBER 2015 Skagen hosts one-night-only public art exhibit at final First Thursdays of 2015 (Cape Town, 8 December 2015) On Thursday 3 December, Danish watch, jewellery and accessory brand Skagen held a one-night-only public art exhibit titled 'Starry Starry Night'. A handful of selected guests were invited for an exclusive first view of the exhibition before it opened to the broader public as part of the monthly First Thursdays roster. The event was the culmination of an innovative social media campaign that involved the commissioning of seven highly influential photographers and stylists that have a strong presence on Instagram. According to Andrew Roberts, Skagen Marketing Manager, the exhibit was designed to introduce local influencers to the unique Danish concept of Hygge. “Hygge cannot be translated in a single word. Rather, it is a combination of many of the pleasures of everyday life: relaxing with friends, enjoying good food, and creating a cozy evening by lighting a candle or two. A picture, as they say, is worth a thousand words, so we gave our photographers free rein to interpret this concept in a series of Instagrams. We think that the result is outstanding.” The images were posted to Instagram before being converted into square format fine-art prints and a series of collectible polaroids, which were put on display at the exhibit and handed to guests as keepsakes. The seven photographers who formed part of the exhibit are: • Amy Scheepers • Angie Batis Durrant • Anna-Belle Mulder • Emma-Jane Harbour • Niquita Bento • Raya Rossi • Zaahirah Bahmjee Skagen is a celebration of Denmark and the seaside village that shares its name, where the North and Baltic Sea meet. Founded in 1989, Skagen products can be found in 80 countries worldwide and online at skagen.com. Skagen is part of the Fossil Group.

Cape Town hospital becomes first in SA to test germ-zapping robot A state-of-the-art robot that kills bacteria and viruses with ultraviolet light has entered the fight against the spread of germs and infections, especially ones that are resistant to antibiotics, for the first time in South Africa. The robot is currently being trialled at Netcare Blaauwberg Hospital in Cape Town. “In South Africa and around the world there is a growing problem with antibiotic resistance. It is essential for us to focus on preventative measures, instead of just throwing bigger and better antibiotics at the problem, especially as pharmaceutical companies are struggling to develop new antibiotic drugs,” says Dr Ricky Dippenaar, head of the neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) at Netcare Blaauwberg and Netcare N1 City hospitals. The Xenex robot is about the size of a large vacuum cleaner, but much better looking. The technology was delivered to Netcare Blaauwberg Hospital recently and put through its paces. The floor plans of each room within the NICU where it will be used had already been programmed into the device. When switched on, a dome-shaped ‘head’ emerges from the robot. This sits on top of a ‘neck’ of lamps that emit pulses of high-intensity xenon ultraviolet (UV) light that destroys bacteria, viruses and mould. There are three spectrums of UV light: A, B, and C. We use suntan lotion to protect ourselves from the A and B spectrums. The earth’s ozone layer protects us from UV-C light, which is what the robot emits. “Because bacteria have never been exposed to this frequency of light, it means they are facing a new environmental factor that they are not able to survive,” says Dr Dippenaar. “The light passes through the cell walls of bacteria, viruses and mould and destroys their DNA, preventing them from replicating.” “This sophisticated equipment is something completely new. We have used UV light in various medical applications before, but never with . . .
