In the nondescript working class suburb of Turffontein, which has always hosted migrants, a restless outsider ar tist is at work transforming his home into a veritable castle of lights, turrets, murals, manikins and stairways. He is an obsessive collector of ‘waste’, but also an entrepreneur whose property is home to 17 rent-paying households. Writer and urban planner Tanya Zack and photographer Mark Lewis dig up another story of a remarkable citizen of the city who has spent most of his life transforming 500 square metre patch of urban soil.
