More experiments.



























I am keen to explore the concept of mazes and labyrinths a little more ... etching? textiles? Perhaps an installation or a performance? Hmmmmm, my mind is awash with possibilities ...

Sea Point Art on the Promenade

More outdoors art. On a beautiful day. With Snous & L'Usband.



























Soft Walls - a photographic installation by Sydelle Willow Smith. Some of my favourites:







 Snous just had to say 'hi' to the dog at No 2983.


























Kom Oor die See (a reference to the Afrikaans song Daar kom die Ali(a)bama) by Haroon Gunn-Salie:

























Rhinosaur by Carl Andre van der Merwe. This comment on rhino poaching consists  of several separate steel plates set at a distance from one another. The image only makes sense when viewed from one angle (through the viewfinder).

The Little Bookcase.

I started a (small) community project on our outside wall. I commissioned L'Usband to build the cabinet, I painted it with happy stripes and a sign to match, and then I proceeded to fill it with books with the help of two friends. The idea is that people can take books for free, read them, keep them or pass them on to a friend or charity. The only proviso is that I ask people not to sell books they take.

A week into the project - about 14 books have been taken, and 3 books have been added by persons unknown. Pretty cool, hey!
