The term #Redlighter is a metaphor.
Red – stands for emotion , action and danger or warning
Lighter – in this context means to burn or set on fire or figuratively burn/blow it up ,as in to make it happen in a visual way.
Its an on going art project where I identify certain issues then take action by creating awareness through art making and content creation.
A Covid World
This body of work was conceptualized through a series of notes I took throughout 2020.
I host a podcast where I talk to artists about their process , art , politics and how they have been adapting to the lockdown and the new reality or world we entering.
I curated my notes and looked at the major themes like the confusion, alcohol and tobacco prohibition , mental well being and fatigue , creative expression and understanding.
What I noticed was that most of us felt the same.
We internalised the stress , found a deeper sense of purpose and challenged that energy through art making.
I decided to use these points to illustrate how we here in South Africa adapted , reacted and internalized the covid19 pandemic.
