Morningview Estate

I interviewed my neighbours and recorded their voices; speaking about their choice to live in a gated estate in Johannesburg. They are insightful, detailed and a good reflection of the type of community I live in. They could be described as either selfish or self-contained, but the adjectives I’m more inclined to use are ‘shy’, ‘polite’ or 'guarded'. The existing mauve, grey and white glass, concrete and steel houses seem sturdy in their design but contain an emotional fragility that I find intriguing. I decided to make a sound installation that spoke about this polite interaction between neighbours which is always mediated by the ownership and demarcation of land.
