African Video Art to Know: Kwa Baba Rithi Undugu

 "Kwa Baba Rithi Undugu (2010, 1m:23s) is a part of the Haba na Haba installation that explores the themes of ‘voice’ and ‘voicelessness’. It consists of two sculpturally made transistor radios with embedded TFT monitors. The devices contain audio-visual data that have been specially selected and intentionally interfered with by the artist, in order to make it somewhat inaccessible or incomprehensible. This intentional ‘break in transmission’ gives two choices to viewers: to either ignore the content of the work, which they may perhaps not even understand or relate to – this is often the fate of the voiceless individual – or to try to listen and engage with what is being said by this voice that speaks from a place of ‘difference’ " - http://artradarjournal.com/2014/03/01/10-african-video-artists-to-know-now/
