Body, light, interaction, sound: a critical reading of a recent installation of Willem Boshoff’s Kykafrikaans
David Paton explores the use of digital presentation strategies in a recent installation of Kykafrikaans by Willem Boshoff. In relation to a dominant metaphor of our time, the notion that digital information is disembodied, Paton takes a critical stance on two key elements of the installation, namely, the digital projection of images and the broadcast of recorded sounds. Paton discusses these framing elements both in relation to themes of disembodiment, as may be found in the installation and in terms of the conventional reception of this work in print and book forms as embodied.
