Brief: There is often a disconnection between Wits – as place of knowledge – and Braamfontein. The everyday user of Braamfontein is unaware of the knowledge that is housed within the boundary of Wits, for example, the often unseen artefacts that are safely and securely stored within the WAM (Wits Art Museum) archive. These can be seen as existing outside of their intended purpose and often the cultural contexts from which they originate no longer exist. Interrogating this disjunction is the springing point of the project. Thus we want to explore the possibilities of creating a connection. The archived artefacts emerged as a response to their original socio-environmental contexts through choice, selection and availability of natural materials, economic and ecological circumstances, as well as religious and political purposes. Therefore, we will investigate the potentials of an additional evolution and customisation through the use of 3d printing / scanning. By readapting these artefacts to a new social and cultural context we seek to suggest the possible connection of Wits to Braamfontein.
