As a teenager, I was greatly attracted to and excited by movies depicting can-can dancers, the Moulin Rouge or synchronised swimmers. All those sexy legs moving back and forth; fabulous. The idea for ‘Can Can’ is based on those images from the past, translated to the present. ‘Can Can’ consists of a series of objects on the edge of a boulevard or avenue, carrying the street lighting. This is quite a challenge in itself; even more so to get the objects to form a wave. Technically it is feasible plus the wave-like motion will add élan to the streetscape.
