With objects that speak: the force of interaction in historical African artefacts and contemporary art
by Tegan Bristow
International Journal of Arts and Technology (IJART), Vol. 10, No. 2, 2017

Abstract: A discussion on the role of interactive engagement as event in interactive digital art. The work in question, an exhibition of interactive digital art titled 'Meaning Motion' shown at the Wits Art Museum in Johannesburg. These interactive digital artworks are addressed against a series of traditional African artworks and artefacts that were shown in the museum, their initial alignment having been evoked from an unplanned synergy of forms and interactive mechanisms. Theoretically referencing Stern and Massumi in framing a definition of the implicit or continuous body frames this discussion.
