Two street traders in a boxing contest in downtown Johannesburg. The space is delimited by an elastic ribbon, getting narrower and narrower with each round. The project tackles issues of survivalist strategies on the street level; the daily struggle for space and goods, facing competition, spatial regulations and harsh law enforcement.
