The overall intention is to consciously string, reimagine and personify objects that personify our habitats, with a great deal of honesty in a pure silhouette. We imagine a way of being and craft objects based on a combination of inborn and innovative human cultures to recreate a greater environment. Our subject is a balanced cycle between environment, psychology and object.
In the visual aspect of our creations, we express captured form of flowing energy in motion, a combination of innate and progressive human cultures in the body of Afrofuturism. Our creations symbolize immeasurable and extensive influences from the environment and a combination of how it works and how it makes you feel.
“Psychologically my environment shaped a general way of being and my visual perception of objects. Being born in Soweto and raised in a township called Esikhawini, in KwaZulu-Natal, I developed an appreciation for rawness, purity and authenticity. Today, I am drawn to human ways of living, the psychological habits of perception, a cycle of influential human behaviours and how these continue to reshape our environment. Essentially, the idea is to capture and express in harmony the liveliness of inherited and modern cultures and demonstrate design-art that has a healthy influence on the environment and a positive psychological impact.” - Siyanda Mazibuko
