Gallery: TOYLIT: Used Porta Potties as Glowing Eco Artpieces

 
And if you think about it, the dancers, Rah Hlasane and U-Antics, were also a sustainable element of the installation since, after all, they are reused all the time (their livelihood depends on it!).

The installation was part of the Cascoland project, where the goal was to activate an underused stadium. Each rental potty is lit from within by a strong white light, causing it to glow blue against the dark night. During each match break, dancers emerged from each unit along loud pop sounds from the central PA, creating a dazzling display.

The toilets used were all rentals from local vendors and the project was active for only a few weeks. While some materials were purchased, they were all donated to a local organization called Life-line. And if you think about it, the dancers, Rah Hlasane and U-Antics, were also a sustainable element of the installation since, after all, they are reused all the time (their livelihood depends on it!).
