Rea Vaya Artwork


<< <  >

Artists were commissioned as part of the roll out of Johannesburg’s BRT or Rea Vaya stations to submit designs for the glass and steel surfaces of the stations.

My submission entitled 'Joburg Dreaming' was  included on a station in Westbury. The 2m high, and 6m long work was inspired by a divergent thinking process on the city. It is an abstract swirling of patterns and icons, all combined in a singular rhythm. In a sense this captures the pulsing flow of the city, as its users twist, collide and organically occupy its spaces.

Important to the work is its scalar play and multiple view-points, the commuter is literally inside the work, while the city at large looks at it from a distance. The work changes as you examine its detail.
