For those who are not aware cape towns forests are destroyed every summer by raging forest fires and unfortunately the fire department just doesn't have the resources to deal with the situation. so......

We commissioned 'The carpenters shop', an NGO setup to teach woodwork skills to the homeless and unemployed, to carve us 65 fire extinguishers from alien trees.
these are the trees that drink all the water, suck up all the light and most of all spread their seed when they burn. our hope was to create a general awareness around fire prevention by
installing these extinguishers, mounted to alien trees, across all major forests and walkways in cape town.

All 65 extinguishers.were installed over three days spanning across the entire table mountain national park, from signal hill to kalk bay.

we will see how long they all last.
