Digital Spirits and Ancestry is Gerald Khumalo’s work about notions of vulnerability and loss of identity in the digital space and city scape. It explores how the primitive is subsumed in the infinite digital ocean of information. Reminiscent and nostalgic, it will investigate the lingering ancestral spirits that have been turned into residual code after large portions of ancestral and primitive culture were digitised. These spirits are glitches to the digital world and haunt the digital space.
