ACTIVISM IS AN INDICATION THAT THE TIME IS RIPE FOR CHANGE
Stop in the Name of Love formed part of a series of urban activist projects which focused on providing commentary and highlighting specific aspects of the urban context.
This urban activist project engaged the issue of pedestrian safety and driver awareness. This issue bears specific reference to Pretoria – a vehicle-orientated city without sufficient pedestrian amenities.
As a tongue-in-cheek makeshift crossing, this installation left pedestrians with a sense of acknowledgment, security, privilege and self-worth.
