Hillbrow Street Stencils

Keleketla! Library was involved in a Media arts project at the Substation Wits University. The Project was called Nonwane: Passages, Tempo's and Spectacular ways of Dying and was centered around three major texts: Phaswane Mphe's Welcome to Our Hillbrow; Kabelo Sello Duiker's writing generally and the music of the late Moses Taiwa Molelekwa.
Find more information on the project here:
Part of the project involved the creation of replica street signs of some specific streets in Hillbrow, mentioned in Phaswane Mpe's Welcome to Our Hillbrow. I cut a bunch of stencils and took some experimental photo's of them: here are the results. enjoy :)
