Proposal:

I would like to do a site specific installation at the Fringe festival. My images are printed on transparency, mylar, silk and other materials to integrate with the aesthetic of the space that I work in. The type of imagery depends on the inspiration of the space, which I prefer to have some age and history to it, rather than just a white box. It appears that there as some great industrial spaces that the Joburg Fringe has used in the past. My most current installation was in a turn of the century officers house on Governors Island in New York which is the Center for Holography. I made 3d / Stereo x-rays of old oilcans, which look like architectural models, printed on transparency and attached to the windows. These appear to float 3d dimensionally in space. I would love to make another piece for the festival.
