Initially, I began with finding the spaces between people and myself that precipitated certain levels of discomfort because of categories and stereo-types that came easily.

Then I realised how rich a context South Africa is. Its history is marked by the social and cultural dynamics that bypass boundaries while still recognising if not emphasizing boundaries.

It is a country in a phase that is the most critical and most interesting in the ways that it deals with creating nationalism while emphasizing difference in identities. Identity, culture, land, rights, economy, religion and more are continuously re-appropriated and claimed and re-claimed.

It is this sense of ownership, or the loss of, that I would still like to explore further.
What defined individuals by culture becomes a fashionable statement and a sold identity in the global territory of capitalism.
