A public space in Cape Town's city foreshore
In 2005 Earthworks Landscape Architects (ELA) invited me to work on the design for a new public space in Cape Town's foreshore - land that was reclaimed from the sea within the last century. I produced a group of ghost shark sculptures, that swim through air 3 metres above the ground, pivoting to point into the wind like weathervanes. They emerge from a cobble pattern of stylised water swirls, designed by Diekie van Nieeuwenhuizen of ELA.
