Using the Fine Arts Museum's Kimball Education Gallery as a literal and virtual template, the website takes its graphic form from a bird’s eye floor plan of the education space. The landing page is organized with each artist’s menu area occupying a bay—merging the digital/physical as if they are all working together in the education space. Each work table contains various components from the artist’s practice, e.g. scissors, paper, spray paint, a computer, a map, etc. Each of these components open up more information, e.g. a video, an image gallery, or an artist statement. As the project progresses, the objects in the work space multiplied, taking up more of the table and beyond. The last area serves as a “conversation” space, where I have built in a comment and question area for users to engage with the artists via the site.
