Along the Way
The public art project Cascoland, brought together artists from across South Africa to engage with the public space along a 20km stretch within the greater Durban area.
We decided to create a document profiling ten people living along the route. Their stories were told through interviews and photographs and all ten were compiled into a book which was launched at the closing party of the two week Cascoland event.
The seemingly random stripes of colour on the cover are in fact a visual representation of the length of each of the ten lives. Thus the thin pale green band towards the bottom of the book represents the youngest person and the orange band mid-way down, the oldest. The colours are repeated as the dominant colour in the person’s profile.
