The video still from Matsogo represents a final moment of the time-based medium. Matsogo documents a pair of hands crumbling a piece of cake and reforming it into the same wedge shape that references the original slice. Through the process of moving from deconstruction to reconstruction, the essence and consumability of the slice of cake is undermined and lost, as it is recreated into an object, that resembles and has the same elements, as the cake, but has lost its function. The soundtrack combines songs from two different popular Setswana folktales. The songs are mixed together, thereby confusing and convoluting the narratives in such a way that there are three to five characters in an ongoing polylogue, which revolves around belief and disbelief, trust and betrayal.
