Just came across this artistic project which, it has to be said, has a very similar feel to The Ball — just going in the opposite direction from South Africa to France. Perhaps we can meet half-way?
Three innovative artists will kick a ball across the African continent from South Africa to France, in the lead-up to football’s 2010 World Cup. Along the way they’ll catalyze an on-location participative artistic processes with the communities, football fans and artists they encounter. The creations and spirit that arise from these collaborations are the basis for a film/relay from which installations, exhibitions, publications and films for local and international distribution are shaped.
