As we were exploring the junction site, we found these four artifacts:
- a geological historical map, showing the evolution of the delta into a junction and the position of the stars
- a justice stick, symbolic object of conflict or resolution during a debate
- a jar of dried mushrooms, from the mushroom culture that use to exist in the caves of "Bois de la Bâtie"
- an old brick, survivor from the explosion of the gas factory of 1909
The map is situated in the observatory, next to the start of the irrigation system, which also echo the delta of the Arve.
The justice stick is positioned in the debate room, to lead and moderate the different discussions.
The jar of dried mushrooms is hung on the roof next to the artificial mushrooms cultivation in the House, next to its peers.
The brick will be positioned between the bricks of the Dock, as a symbolic representation of the past serving to build the future.
A reproduction of the "Justice Stick" was made. The goal was to understand how people of 1700 used to make it. The carpenter said it was really difficult to draw it and to reproduce it with ancient tools. He had to first draw it on a 3D software (Rhinoceros) before being able to carve it. He said : "today, we probably lost some woodworking knowlge from the past."
