Here Modernity and long gone ancestors make a date to ask for guidance and respond with the utter most respect for ancient rituals in the face of new technologies constantly becoming obsolete. A piece about communication with the departed ancestors in African culture. Here is communication mediated by traditional and contemporary means: an African sculpture and an 1960's yellow telephone. It make allusions also to the most African and Africa diaspora communication patterns of religious interaction, in speech form and in music by" call and response", strategies of democratic participation in community affairs. This is tong in chick piece includes traditional imagery and contemporary technologies and objects.
