A giant yellow picture frame, the second in a series of temporary frames to be introduced across the city, has been unveiled on Signal Hill, providing an idyllic vantage point for visitors to compose a photograph of themselves, friends and family with Table Mountain as the spectacular backdrop.
The 2.8m tall by 4m wide frame was produced by local artist Porky Hefer to celebrate Table Mountain being named one of the New7Wonders of Nature, and the interactive artwork is an official World Design Capital 2014 project.
“As custodians of the park we focus on managing an ecological system that is a benchmark for the globe, but we are also sensitive to the need to provide spaces for visitors to enjoy these natural wonders,” said Wana Bacela, Area Manager: North, Table Mountain National Park. “This campaign is a wonderful way to give visitors the opportunity to capture Table Mountain’s true beauty within our environment.”
As with the frame unveiled at the V&A Waterfront in September, the Signal Hill frame provides visitors with an eye-catching perspective of one of nature’s New7Wonders, and they can share their photos on the Table Mountain website here.
“We are delighted that visitors to Signal Hill will get to interact with the frame in the build-up to World Design Capital 2014; it is a wonderful way to celebrate nature’s perfect design of Table Mountain,” said Sabine Lehmann, MD of Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company.
