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.
