We Make Known is an easy and inspiring access to digitized archives.
A semantic search engine that aims to revolutionise the way we experience our digital memorie. We focus on the joy of discovery, the possibility of wandering around to find hidden treasures.

Solutions for the audience
The interface offers the audience a fun way to explore archives and easily discover hidden treasures.
A small number of diverse results allows a deeper user engagement with fewer objects.
Users can influence the search logic by choosing the amount of the search iterations in an intuitive interaction.
Users are able to retrace the algorithm to see browsed data and the decisions taken on it.
Solutions for the institution
Institutions will be provided with a service that introduces exciting possibilities and promises a managable effort.
WMK offers a widget that easily integrates with existing websites.
The analysing of WMK‘s usage and it‘s visualisation gives insights to improve the archive and inspiration for curation.
WMK offers an upload and managing tool that provides full content control.
We’re fascinated by digitized archives and the treasures hidden in that complex cosmos. We believe that „wandering around“ creates serendipitous moments, worth every dead end on their ways.
Knowledge, hidden in huge datasets, should be accessible for everyone – without feeling lost.
We want to work together with cultural institutions and likely-minded people to improve the cultural landscape and contribute to the open data culture.
The digitization creates a whole new world of possibilities for audiences and institutions, that are hardly developed jet. We want to change that by combining thoughtful design and forward-thinking programming skills.
The treasures they find
will return to your shores and enrich your curation practice.
We send them on a expedition to the vast lands of knowledge.
We offer people a fun way to create their own maps to your archive.

The project started 2014 at the open cultural data hackathon Coding da Vinci in Berlin. Three programmers and one designer came together and developed the first prototype "Mnemosyne". Since than WMK was presented at several events and featured in a couple of online articles and radio shows.
