Illustrations for Chimurenga 15: The Curriculum is Everything (Cape Town: 2010)

 What could the curriculum be – if it was designed by the people who dropped out of school so that they could breathe?”  The brief asked for hand-drawn illustrations as imaginative interpretations of the words/concepts listed in the Glossary of the Curriculum. The illustrations were placed as visual notes (VN) for texts in sections II – IV, depicting a range of words such as dyslexia, trinity, and dreams, amongst others. I also contributed the small reading note (RN): Love (a translation). Read more about the Curriculum here.

Architect, part-time lecturer, external examiner. I am interested in spaces of collective memory, the visual arts and architecture’s potential to enable change. I practice at the intersection between meaning, aesthetics and commerce. As an external examiner I look to architecture as an act of translation
