This is one of a series of works produced at the Artist’s Residency at the Association for Visual Arts in Cape Town entitled ‘Binary Humans’. During the residency Booyens used the gallery space at the AVA to investigate the effects that digital projection streams produce via code merging and data mulching. The work, although abstract in form, is in fact representational of digital corruptions and manipulations created through coding. During the Booyens residency the AVA hosted the South African participation of the event ‘Liberty and Recognition for Edward Snowden Worldwide’ organised by the Berlin Literary Festival.

The proceeds from the sale of the following lot will benefit the Association for Visual Arts
