About the project
“A Ghost Tour of Camphor Avenue” with Chanelle Adams a part meditative experience, part ghost tour was one of the exciting events for the ICA Live Art Festival 2022.
The Salsa was commissioned to create a map (folded from A3 to A6) and an A6 postcard for the event that the audience would use during the tour.
Part meditative experience, part ghost tour, Camphor Avenue: A Garden of Ghosts is a practice in noticing colonial continuums in botanical gardens and an experiment with face-to-face encounters with ghosts.
The illustration was drawn on paper using a dipping pen and ink. The lines and forms create an eerie ambiance to set the tone for this tour. Originally this was a routine Graphic Design request, but I offered my client illustration as there was no definite choice for the cover at the time and one of my specialities is drawing trees. I also really loved her work and the project and wanted the artwork to reflect the essence of the narrative.
