Past Adventures

  • Ensuring we have lived the life we love requires us to look for treasure in every moment.

  • This is a beautiful ceremonial space created in a natural amphitheatre with rocks collected from the immediate mountain area. It is in Citrusdal in the Western Cape in South Africa and can be seen from google earth.

  • How does one become The Howl? Actioning the yearning of passion from ones heart. A Giant Wolf head made of Port Jackson and twine. This was a remarkable lesson trusting materials. Who knew that twine and sticks could be so strong? This has stood for 2 years in Citrusdal, South Africa.

  • Abracadabra - 'I create as I speak'.

  • The village feast, a collaborative, inclusive and interactive art installation based around food and provenance.

  • Ikstingkt: Horny Alive and Free. Larger than life-size cardboard beasts.

  • X Here2016

    You are treasure right where you are. This giant golden X was an land art installation at Afrikaburn 2016. It is a follow on from the concept of being 'The Pirate of Your Life. X marks the spot where you stand. Where you stand is pure treasure.

Hexagon Ceremony Space

Key Communication Elements of this Work

Line and Shape using available material - mountain and river rock.

Mountain rock does have some flat sides that can be used to create line (this is labour and time intensive) 

BETTER solution is to use river rock to create/ differentiate line and fill in spaces with mountain rock.

River Rock represents free flowing creation and expansion by defining the lines of the spiral as well as being rounded by . River rock also relates directly to the spring/s located in the amphitheatre.

Mountain Rock represents strength, land, structure and is radiating outward with the smaller rocks in the centre and rocks getting larger as the size expands.

Direction, North is shown using a triangle. This is simple, spartan (the only thing simpler wound be a line). All other directions are obtained from this one fact.

The Triangle at the centre of the hexagon represents strength, inner knowing and the understanding that when one knows their inner truth everything expands from here.

Union is represented in the 3 split lines in the triangle. The union of 2 people and always their union to something greater. 

The centre point being the unlimited point of expansion that comes from our truth, our relation teach other and our understanding of the world around us.

Creation from Union is shown through the spiral radiating from the triangle. With strength of knowing and acting from truth comes the free flow of life’s wonders. The counter clockwise direction of the spiral represents the inevitable fulfilment obtain when living and existing together in truth.

The Hexagon represents the natural expansion of the Union. The Hexagon also resembles much of the natural flora from the area. The edges are clear but not fully defined indicating exponential expansion the occurs when we stand together in our individual strengths and our wonder and gratitude our greater environment.

Nix Davies

"Through the mystery of navigating the unknown we are able to wondrously unravel our hearts to expose their true nature.“

Nix Davies is a collaborative, conceptual artist that explores possibilities that arise from consciously stepping into and existing in the unknown. She creates and produces large-scale experiential spaces, events and artworks that ordinarily are impossible to create alone. Nix initiates, instigates and ignites concepts by establishing a platform that require others to step up, risk, interact and belong to the process alongside her. This requires Nix to co-create; manage individuals and groups; and produce an over all piece of work by consciously making or facilitating a series of choices of best possible solutions for specific moments.

Nix often embarks on ‘life installations’ that showcase the emerging and developing of concepts along an ordinarily unknown journey. It is while living and navigating these spaces that she breathes ideas to life.

  • Nix Davies is the founder of The School Of Innovation.
  • Nix ran a collaborative, changing, working space called Let There Be Light in Woodstock for four years at the Woodstock Industrial Centre and Side Street Studios.
  • Nix has recently moved to a farm outside Citrusdal in the Western Cape where she has created Howl from Your Heart and the Hexagon Ceremonial Space.
