"Inspired by Achille Mbembe's intriguing essay, "The Digital Age Erases the Divide Between Humans and Objects", Dreaming the Street explores the realism of urban culture at street level in parts of Cape Town and Johannesburg, combining elements of portraiture and cityscape, where a constantly recurring motif is the ubiquity of smart devices, literally, wherever one looks." David Lurie, pg. 12
