Nelson Mandela's Warrant of Arrest for Treason - 1961 NFT
Liliesleaf is one of South Africa’s foremost national heritage sites. Between 1961 and 1963, Liliesleaf served as the secret headquarters and nerve centre of the ANC, SACP, Umkhonto we Sizwe and the Congress Alliance.
SAVING SOUTH AFRICAN HERITAGE FOR THE PEOPLE
'The loveliest times at Liliesleaf farm was when I was visited by my wife and family… At these weekends, time would sometimes seem to stop as we pretended that these stolen moments together were the rule not the exception of our lives. Ironically, we had more privacy at Liliesleaf than we ever had at home. The children would run about and play, and we were secure, however briefly, in this bubble.'
Delta Scan's digital capture process
The Komjekejeke Heritage Site is going to be converted into a photorealistic digital model, or as some refer to as a "digital twin". This forms the basis of the experience and the new era of metaverses and 3D spaces that are becoming accessible to anyone anywhere in the world.
Our brief was to recreate the experience of being on site, being immersed in the culture, the vivid colours in the artwork, the surrounding nature and be able to allow someone anywhere in the world to experience it. By creating a digital version of a site we freeze that experience in time and preserve it in the endless world of the digital age.
