‘A book is conceptual until you open it. In art, those things are in your face. I work with the idea of knowledge in a package: how we keep knowledge, package it, store it—through books, the computer, oral tradition; how we process it and manipulate it through art and how we can share it, or publish it’ (Sue Williamson, ‘Willem Boshoff’, Artthrob, no. 48, August 2001).
According to the artist, Blind Dots ‘is so titled because the tactile brushes appear to invite light stroking with the hand, almost as if the visitor is blind. The dots were formed when the handle at the center of each brush left a small round gap when it was unscrewed. These gaps were filled by the same white bristle as that surrounding each brush. The dots are very slightly raised to make them noticeable to blind people’.
