British Council/Connect ZA – Fak’ugesi African Digital Arts Festival
Location: Braam, Johannesburg
Date: August 2016
Commissioned by: British Council/Connect ZA
Following a British Council/Connect ZA invitation to participate at the inaugural Alight Festival and the Fak’ugesi African Digital Arts Festival in Johannesburg, we animated the streets of Braam using site specific video projections and imaginative use of structures.
The British Council/Connect ZA team gathered a group of young international digital artists to help create 3 interventions featuring the talented young dancers from Moving into Dance:a huge 20m high projection onto an adjacent tower block; projections onto the entrance to the Tshimologong Innovation Precinct (where the Alight and Fak’ugesi festivals were held); and a number of roaming handheld projections .
