Wilma Cruise's Poor Horace: (Watching The Hours)
I've had an unbridled love of horses (forgive the pun), from a very young age. And nothing has delighted me more, than the thought of this age-old beast of burden and our all-but -forgotten companion being given a new lease of life - a fission of glamour - through the visual interrogation of some of South Africa's top contemporary artists. Among the 60 artists that created equine work is Anthea Moys, a playful artists I have had the delight of working with on Infecting The City.
It's just a pity that it is in Johannesburg. And about to finish. Sigh. I can delight in the pictures though.

I've just come across this very interesting tag-cloud comparison. In a snapshot, it gives a rundown of the difference between what Bush and Obama thought the people wanted to hear, and the different personalities being offered to the American people. I wonder if we could do the same for Mbeki vs. Zuma; or Mugabe 1980 and Mugabe 2011. Both would be a stunning excercise.
