SUNSTAR ON SIGNAL HILL - CAPE TOWN

Designed by Christopher Swift and part of the World Design Capital initiatives, the SunStar was made with pieces of the fencing from Robben Island.

Standing 24 metres high, this outdoor art installation will stay on Signal Hill for about six months before it’s moved, possibly to one of the properties of Sun International, who funded the piece. 

Solar-powered LED lights and supporting flood lights make the SunStar shine and use the daytime sunlight to charge so that it can brightly burn over the city at night.

It’s meant to be a beacon of hope and reflection and is intended to prompt all who look at it to think about the past, the present, and, of course, to what the future holds. It is also meant to remind us about the likes of former president Nelson Mandela, who have helped us get to where we are now and who have served as inspiration for us all.
