The Domino Effect - Hermon, Western Cape
Tracey Derrick and Chris Murphy
Working with the separated past of the village of Hermon - which continues to manifest in the present – Tracey Derrick and Chris Murphy plan to establish the Hermon Domino Tournament in partnership with the local community. The project will also involve the erection of large-scale domino sculptures in the tournament play area, as well as public photographic displays in commemoration of the event and history of the village.
Tracey Derrick has been a full-time portrait and documentary photographer since 1991. Her projects are primarily concerned with social and community issues. Last year she completed her Postgraduate Diploma of Art at the Michaelis School of Fine Art. Chris Murphy has extensive experience as a graphic designer in London and Cape Town, and studied at both Ruth Prowse School of Art in Cape Town and Ealing College in London.
