Michael Tawk

Michael Tawk's virtual platform A’ARU provides a place for all kinds of artists to expose their work in an unprecedented way, while at the same time allowing people of all walks and backgrounds to connect and express themselves.
Users are able to access the world under different titles or abilities, the main category being artists and performers. Artists and performers become the editors of A'ARU, meaning they have the ability and access to alter different parameters and visuals. The general population makes up the second category, classed as guests of this world, who connect with the editors and experience their work.

Michael Tawk

An architect at base, it has helped me look at the world differently. The details of every kind of project is what make it perfect. I decided to dwell into the world of user experience since it has been something I have been dealing with different realms throughout my life. I am currently in the process of building a start up where I will try to change the perspective of any kind of event in the future.
