Our work calls into question the individual’s relationship with the public places of our everyday lives. Public space has become contested space and the general public’s ability to inhabit it, as citizens rather than consumers, is increasingly under challenge. We aim to contribute to contemporary culture through interventions and projects that engage people in a dialogue about the possibilities of public space.
The inspiration for our name comes from the qualities of observation, stealth and adpatability that are embodied by hawks. They are believed to be amongst the most intelligent of birds and are well known for their excellent eyesight, many times more powerful than humans. This is coupled with aspects of Logistics, a management system that controls the efficient flow of goods, services and information between the point of origin and points of consumption.
Redhawk Logistica aims to keep watch on aspects of our rapidly evolving public life and deliver cultural solutions and interventions that are relevant and timely.
We offer a wide range of services that engage people with the contemporary urban environment in creative ways. We self initiate projects, some are developed in partnership with organisations and others are the result of commissions and collaborations.
