even better. place work on the public's response to it to be shared all over the world in two thousand and eighteen social media is non-temporal part of public relations. as is that it is and there is a good advertisement for the museum which needs as much publicity as it can guess at all things on the. under enormous pressure to boost visitor numbers. in the why is it so we have to go where the people are and these days that's on instagram facebook and twitter to tell the. other museums are also allowing this is to interact with beyond. my rembrandt project sort of rembrandt portray traveling around the world and even into outer space. but the social media really pays to visit to numbers one of the field has at that cannot protect app is any activated inside the museum. it's

but we stay in munich for our next report where architecture students at the university of applied sciences are not only learning how to create new structures but also how to repair and reconstruct in fact there's a whole course that focuses on how to fix and restore rather than replace upcycling meets academia. mending something to make it work properly again restoring it these architecture students are getting to the bottom of the very essence of free pen for them fixing things gives them meaning. they're motivated by a desire to understand how they work. granny's chest table was hidden under a table cloth for six months the money coming spent nearly every weekend working on it. deceptive tissue i basically restored the table completely but it's more than one hundred years old and it was totally wrecked because there have been used for
3:43 pm
just about anything for ironing even. some of the inmate work had broken and come out there were cracks because of the demands placed on the wood which dried out so i filled them and fixed the best and here in the middle i basically put in an entirely new transport but i think is that. students taking a one semester course of it by munich university of applied sciences develop repair concepts. fixing things changes your view of the world. escapes me a little in trying not to like teaching students how to solve the electrical cables or clocks that whole do it yourself movement of getting things working again. i'm more concerned with sensitising students to better methods of construction. back has written a book about repairs she says things are generally made so that if one element fails the entire thing fails she teaches people to change that.

3:45 pm
you don't need to buy anything new if you fix it because it's useful for longer you also get smarter when you repair things and i think that's really important you get to the bottom of things and look closely at how something is made of it costly it is this heirloom job once decorated the living room of this woman's parent's house the access was broken and elect missing for me just over fifty reasons unknown to me it was simply important to have something to remember my grandparents died because they're no longer with us living and this will bring had a crack all the way through it so it would have broken in half if you told them that it's all part of the problem was that i had a very delicate marks up here so guns philokalia and i wanted to recreate the most accurately as possible. the thing i wish so i drew the ring in three they did it so i did so and shaped it with the milling machine wonderfully slid off and then engraved everything out here with a laser of does all this i think of you it. three d.

printing is revolutionizing repairing it's simple plastic threads are fed into the back and out comes the double of the original it's like a three d. photocopy at. some bashed visited but it's safe for instance you can't use broken and you need a new leg for it you've still got through that intact unscrew one of them and put it in the three d. scanner. and he's going to software that can capture that so accurately that you can basically print an exact replica of his i remembered and so it's also. the ring on this coffee pot was broken. it was repaired using a three d. printer and all the valuable design objects from the nine hundred fifty s. can be used again i point. friend of mine recently says that repairing things is a luxury i think that in a way owning objects that can be repaired in the first place is a lecturing they're valuable goods and we should be producing more of them.
