The "Swallows in flight" installation was commisioned by Laurence Graff for the Indochine restaurant at the Delaire Graff Wine Estate, Stellenbosh. The installation uses the movement of flight as an expression of vibrance and harmony.

The complete artwork weighs an approximate 720kg and has an external diameter of 8 meters on the main supporting structure. There are 800 swallows in the composition comprising of seven different colours of perspex arranged in descending tonal values. The design of the swallows installation was developed over a three month period to comply with all the client’s criteria. The artwork itself took another three months to produce with the assistance of numerous technicians under my supervision.
