Description

A small-scale hybrid form, created from a matrix of miniature cut glass bottles, glass-diffused text animations, presented in English and Sesotho (South African) languages, contributed by social change agents/collaborators from the informal townships around Bloemfontein, South Africa where I am working on a project called Re-Future. The work presents an abstracted version of this quote by Thabang Mofokeng, leader of the HOT Rural Workers Collective, presented in English and Sesotho.

There is no time to complain, the only remaining time is to start implementing change if not we will perish. Ha ho na nako ea ho chacheha ka mohono, nako e setseng ke ea hore re fetohe eseng moo re tla timela.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
