Abstract:This article describes a site-responsive intervention which was part of the 'Infecting the city' public arts festival in Cape Town, South Africa, in January 2011. This form of art/performance is, in simple terms, live art, which finds location outside of conventional spaces (galleries/theatre). The performance consisted of a man who painted a pink three kilometers long line in Cape Town from the foot of Table Mountain to the sea following the flow of the Camissa River which now runs in tunnels underground.
