My friend Neil is making sculpture this year, with his friend Di. Tessa, my friend who is a potter, is having so much fun, she found another colour in the rainbow last week (scroll down for that). My sister’s been putting up surprise messages on my kitchen blackboard walls and the 13-year-olds in the backyard are doing cool things with spay paint and dinged old surfboards.
So it looks like everyone’s decided to have wake up and smell the candyfloss. Like the person from poundingheartbeat.com who decorated the lovely donut up at the top with Froot Loops. (Kelloggs doesn’t even make them anymore. Well, not in South Africa. Too much fun?)
If you want the adult to meet the kid in you halfway, circle 9 February for a trip to the Freeworld Design Centre in Cape Town. The designers at FDC are lining up their KIDDULT exhibition to run from 9 Feb. Yesterday I snuck a look at the work in progress inside the concept pods. Mint frosting had descended on the walls of one of the pods, and the painter on the job looked like he was having yards of fun doing it.
KIDDULT exhibition will showcase the beautiful i-Jusi Portfolio and clever stuff by Atang Tshikare, who can customise your shoes with paint. Francois van Reenen will be there and The Fringe Arts will be doing workshops to keep us all feeling creative.
Ok, enough. It’s Friday afternoon and the sun is still hot. Time to play.
