Last week was a watershed moment in my artistic practice. After two years of prototyping and research my first public sculpture launched alongside the new wing of the Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation in Masiphumalele. It is an area very close to my heart and near to where I grew up. The state-of-the-art TB research centre was opened by one of South Africa's most inspiring women, the Vice-Chancellor of UCT, Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng.
