Alley Project – The Fringe, Cape Town Creative Week September 2011

Written by Heath on March 14th, 2012

As part of Cape Town creative week in the newly designated Fringe district in the east city, I was asked to beautify an alley in Harington Street.

 

I asked Lyall Sprong (from ThingKing) to join forces with me on this as I knew he had made a series of spinning plastic windmills for another project in Kayelitsha previously. This was the kernel that the project started with…

 

So we installed a new piece of fence, and arranged a workshop day to beautify the thing. On the appointed day, I brought along a whole lot of colourful bottle bases (parts we don’t use much in my own production), and the public was asked to make a windmill as they passed by and attach it to the fence.

 

It was a triumph.
