Double vision - Pippa Skotnes & Malcolm Payne, 2006

This installation comprises a bank of 110 cases and was curated as the final display in the rock art museum at the Origins Centre at Wits University. The installation seeks to provide an historical contextualization of some of the issues raised by the museum and to contrast an adjacent exhibit by Willem Boshoff (which deals with the naming of groups, often imposed) by naming individuals whose lives and ideas have assisted in the interpretation of southern African rock art. It also provides a visual interpretation of the idea, articulated in |xam in the South African motto "People who are different come together".
