A new work by Bronwyn Holloway-Smith is to be unveiled today (8 December, 2009) at Massey University Wellington. The work, titled ‘Ghosts in the form of gifts’ has been commissioned by Massey University Wellington as their most recent acquisition, marking their 10th Anniversary at Wellington.

The artwork comprises ten objects that are replicas of artifacts imagined as lost, hidden or misregistered during the Museum of New Zealand’s tenure in the former Museum Building on Buckle St, now occupied by Massey University’s College of Creative Arts. The objects have been created through a process of drawing, digital 3D rendering, and finally printing with an Open Source 3-dimensional printer – the RepRap.

The digital files for the artefacts are freely available for educational re-use under a Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license.

The work is on permanent display in the foyer of the Executive Seminar Suite, Block 5, Gate A, Wallace St, Mt Cook with the web-based aspect of the work found at /gifts/
