Jive Media Africa have put together a number of exhibitions around subjects such as PalaeoTourism (Client: Dept of Science and Technology), Astronomy (Clients: SKA, IYA), Political Cartooning (Client: EU/ CWCI), Antarctica (Client: Robert Inglis), etc.
Here are some hightlights:
Mobile Exhibition: International Year of Astronomy (IYA) banner – “The Universe – yours to explore”
Making the universe everyone’s to explore.
We’re bringing the universe closer to ordinary South Africans. Jive Media has produced a 10m long banner with the stunning images from deep space that are usually only available to those with internet access.
This banner showcases space to the general public. Large, high resolution images of near and deep space will showcase phenomenon such as nebulae, supernovas, globular clusters and galaxies, in all their brilliance. Images of our sun, earth and moon as many have never seen them before, as well as the planets in our solar system, are also showcased.
An extract from an email received from Charles Phillips appears below:
Hi Marina –
This is just to say how thrilled we are to receive the fantastic set of six
SKA banners recently, and to confirm that these are now proudly hung near
our Space Zone along with all our space and astronomy displays which include
a large SALT model, Mark Shuttleworth’s space suit and a replica of his
Soyuz capsule, interactive Mars Rover plus some actual space debris that
landed in W/Cape some years ago etc etc!
Kind regards –
Charles Phillips – Exhibition Manager

Antarctica: Healing in Harsh Places
A Photographic Exhibition by Robert Inglis
This exhibition ran at The Tatham Art Gallery, containing beautiful A2 photographs of Robert Inglis’ overwinter 15 month stay in Antarctica. The exhibition was dedicated to a young man who died of AIDS-related complications, who had one of Robert’s photographs of Antarctica on his wall.
