The Casspir Project

22 Mar 2017

The making of Ralph Ziman's Casspir. 60 million hand threaded beads, one Casspir military vehicle transformed into this extra-ordinary drivable sculpture. This is the beginning of The Casspir Project, which aims to reclaim this Apartheid vehicle's legacy of terror and send it on a new mission. A mission to revisit its past and recreate its future, overlaying memories of terror with new bright and positive ones redolent with new messages and prompting different questions.
