Vision – Main Street Life

Digital prints, drawings and sculptural sketches towards a permanent installation on the roof of the new development: Main Street Life.

The public artwork aims to reflect on the aspirations of Johannesburg’s search beneath the surface through its goldmines, referenced here in the gear-head design, and the understanding of our planet and environment through studying our contemporary skies, such as through telescopes in the nearby Observatory. On looking through this proposed telescope on the roof of Main Street Life, the viewer will see a self-referential kaleidoscopic image. The artwork has been integrated into the branding of the building and design details and fabrication methodologies are being developed in further sketches and models towards realizing its production and installation.
