ORIGINS CENTRE


 
Totem's original project in South Africa was the Origins Centre at the University of the Witwatersrand. This world-class museum celebrates the origin of humans in Africa with an extraordinary collection of early material culture. The exhibition uses art as a narrative story-telling device throughout the museum.

“More than any other recent museum, the Origins Centre succeeds in disseminating a vast range of research and intellectual material from a diverse range of fields in a coordinated way that’s accessible to a lay public. Its use of a wide variety of presentation techniques, perfectly suited to the requirement of each visitor, is a rare achievement ... In the end, the museum is exemplary in its attempt to synthesize exhaustive knowledge available from an infinite number of sources, presenting it in all its complexity without ever dumbing it down for the visitor.”

Prof. PG Raman, University of the Free State, in Architecture South Africa, January/February 2007
