Artist Statement:


    HOP ON played with the ideas for a participative design of future public transport and cultural place making in Durban. During a public intervention at the „wreck“ of “uShaka Marine World Durban” by the PS2-Team, the HOP ON Team: Sibonelo Hlanganani Gumede, Researcher at “Urban Futures Centre DUT” and Paul Jones, Director at consulting agency “Lumec”, and “Elektro Moon Vision”, visitors could get an insight into the people´s need of a new bus system and HOP ON’s research for a participatory re-design of the Durban public transport system that is thwarted by corrupt taxi businesses. For HOP ON participative urban development means also to create culturally public spaces out of non-spaces and to link the different parts by public transport – the HOP ON bus shuttle system – mobility for all people in Durban.
