I went out and about this hot afternoon and guess where my restless self landed me. I found myself in the KNUST museum , where an event christened TRATECH is taking place. TRATECH is an annual trade and technology fair of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology. Students and department come together to exhibit projects that they have carried out. Some of the projects are for exhibition and others are for sale at very cool prices. As a walked through the rather very hot museum, my camera jumped out of my pocket and captured some amazing scenes for your eyes. YES! for your eyes.
A few weeks before the event, this was how the museum looked like. It was dressed totally in sackcloth. This was extremely strange and most people questioned the idea behind it. I still do not know why that was done but I made my mind run creatively wild and the answer I had was, the organisers wanted to create some kind of awareness.
I didnt know my camera was interested in Africa and its politics just like its owner. It first captured this about a United States of Africa.
This is a portrait of Nkrumah I guess, created with bottle corks. Its awesome.
I think this is an architect’s work of some section of KNUST.
This machine and one other, created by some students are used for recycling and exudation of rubber.
well, well, well, are they not beautiful?
Hahahahah.. my camera smiled at this one….. A picture of Dr. Nkrumah made solely of nails.. just zoom it out……. amazingly beautiful. One significant thing I noticed is that materials that would have rather caused great environmental problem are the ones used in the creation and designing of most of these beautiful artifacts. Is that not laudable?
