Sequential Drawings of The Workshop Shopping Centre, Durban
The brief was to produce a graphic sequence or series in response to an aspect of Durban which conveys a sense of place, community and society.The Workshop is a double storey shopping centre which has a ‘backyard’ park area. In that park area is a whole community of vendors and small business operations. It intrigues me, walking through The Workshop and experiencing all this business diversity and studying the types of people that visit these stalls and make use of the facilities. It is a very loud, very busy part of town, that seems to function perfectly for the people who utilise the spaces to earn a living.
