is made out of 100 reflective chevron street signs. The signs have been assembled in a colour scheme that forms one singular mandala. The hypnotic colourful design within the circle (in its blue outline) hides the image of a blue wildebeest. The piece is influenced by African craftwork designs usually found in bowls and plates. The artwork has been placed at a T-junction. When cars drive passed it, it illuminates at night. Location: New Doornfontein, Johannesburg / Dimensions: 5 meter X 5 meter / 2015.
