We followed a group of Btech students from CPUT to the 2015 Afrikaburn festival in the Tankwa Karoo
Their goal was to communicate the message of climate change through design and creative interaction.
Just going to Afrika burn is a challenge, taking water not only for yourself but for an active participation event is a bold statement in stark contrast to the arid landscape that is the Tankwa Karoo.
This was their journey.
The Afrikaburn festival is a celebration of art, culture, music and social interaction. The CPUT Fiscilla installation will be re-installed at the festival with a second interpretation of her journey made manifest by the added element of water and a performance art piece to bring the message of climate change to the audience and participants in a powerful way.
The SANCOOP project funded by the Research Council of Norway is the core collaboration between CPUT and AHO (The Oslo School of Architecture and Design). The project’s aim is to build a sustainable design project for generating research by leveraging African and international networking opportunities to address issues of climate change and respond with designedly solutions in a meaningful and relevant way.
