THOMAS MATTHAEI, FABIAN FILSS
THE WALTZ-PROJECT IN SOUTHERN AFRICA
In former times, young journeyman left their families and friends behind to become masters of their craft. For three years and one day to come, they travelled the country, never staying longer than one month at one place. It was a way to find out the bravest and most talented during challenging times in difficult circumstances. It was adventurous, often dangerous - a time full of gaining profound knowledge in their profession and for life.
Now we want to reanimate this tradition to experience adventures, show off what we are a dab hand at... and most of all, learn something new! We, Fabian and Thomas, are two resourceful designers from Bavaria - studying at the FH Augsburg in the final part of our training. We dont have a fixed route - like we said before: we go to where we are needed and welcome, and stay there for maximum two weeks. We want to go where unexpected ideas are at home and interesting people can be found. The offer: our design skills. The payment: we get the (South)african way of design solutions. And maybe from time to time something to eat or a place to sleep, perhaps a beer - or, even better, all three of that.
