Mak1one has just started work on two murals for the City of Cape Town Water department in Khayalisha and Mitchells Plain.The project aims to educated the public on various water saving tips and to show what exactly is inside the structure, which houses a water management system that brings all the water into the township and redirects it to several water points.From the start of this project we have been very focused on making sure the community is involved with the creative contribution to what is actually painted in the mural.
Today a new youth talk show from SABC2 called "Keeping it real" came out to interview Mak1one about the project.

Sshadoworkss brought out New York based DJ ,Tim Sweeney from the legendary, DFA records Sshadowworkss asked us to come up with decor ideas for the event, give aways on the night and a way for the event sponsor Sportscene to have a presence in the venue.
We came up with a "3 in 1" idea that really worked.
We got KNOLC to make us a "Tim Sweeney" doll with three different outfits
"Super Sweeney" "Bling Sweeney" and "Normal Sweeney" were born.
We set out with Photographer Jonx Pillemer to capture the Sweeney characters in all kinds of typical Cape Town situations.
The result : 100 awesome photos.
We went junk shopping and got hold of 100 really nice old frames .
We added the Sportscene logo as a signature to each image. We printed and framed all the photos and hang them with prestic (so ppl could take them home) randomly all over the venue making it look like an exhibition.
We built a "pop up book" style set to display the original toy at the entrance of the venue.
Included in the installation was a little animation loop playing on old TV's of the pictures with sShadowworkss and Sportscene logos Video by Ari Kruger.
As planned every last picture frame was ripped off the wall and taken home.
What a cool party, thanks to Sshadowworkss for bringing out such quality acts.
