The Stone Spiral Mandala installation took place in Mamelodi on the ridge of the Magalies Mountain. The site was previously used as an informal garbage heap, and the surrounding veld had been badly burnt.
The installation was both land art intervention and cleansing ritual. The artists confronted the derelict nature of the context by engaging with members of the surrounding community and enacting a cleansing ritual performed by Selogadi Mampane with all present.
With very limited means, this installation employed design as a tool for creating conversations about the environment, city and community.
