SILVERSTAR CASINO 3RD ANNIVERSARY
Johannesburg, South Africa
March 2011 - 10 DAY BUILD
Berg's first project in Africa, the artist spent 10 days creating a replica of Silverstar Casino with 63,000 freestanding playing cards in celebration of the resort's third anniversary. The composition included the property's gaming and dining area, hotel, lake, and fountains. Berg also hosted cardstacking workshops for kids at Mashudu Primary School and on-site, and enlisted 4 young soccer players to help with the knockdown. The project was covered by top print, television, and radio outlets in Johannesburg and South Africa as well as internationally on ProSieben's Galileo Big Picture, Germany, and a segment for the Discovery Channel.
