AREWA (Kano)

ANCIENT KANO (PRIMARY RESEARCH)

Kano is the state capital of Kano State in North West, Nigeria. It is located in the Sahelian geographic region, south of the Sahara and is the most commercial city in Northern Nigeria. Kano is the second largest city in Nigeria, after Lagos. Kano is known for it's history in trading as well as it's beautiful sand houses in the ancient parts of the old city.

Taking a look at traditional Northern Architecture dating all the way back to when the city was first founded, I found myself wanting to incorporate the designs of the walls as well as the warm colours of the building interiors to my work. 

I was able to visit Gidan dan hausa, which translates to 'the home of the hausa speaker'. Hausa is the language I grew up speaking. It is a Chadic language, spoken as a first language by about 27 million people. The ancestral language of the Hausa people, said to be one of the largest ethnic groups in Central Africa.

Colour Bombs

I searched for examples of how to make colour bombs as I felt that I could benefit from the experience of actually creating them myself. However, I am aware of the dangers involved. I would still like to include them in my project whether homemade or purchased.

Experimenting with Colour Bombs

I purchased some colour bombs and decided to further my research by seeing how the horse would react to it. I found that the horse was afraid of the smoke being made and kept moving away fro it. This gave me the opportunity to take photographs of the horse in motion.
