Web Information Visualization (2005)


Since computer art started around the 1960s, many new media artworks have been created and exhibited worldwide. There are many informative websites and blogs which offer new media art works and exhibition information, but the information is scattered. To check all exhibition schedules, a user has to visit many websites. Currently there is no visualization tool which collectively displays this specific field of information.
The goal of this project is to develop an effective visualization tool for displaying and interacting with international new media exhibition information that is online.

  • To gather scattered information about new media art works and shows
  • To see contemporary media art sorted according to a country, a genre and an artist
  • To pursue user friendly interface.

Main Page
This interface was created concentrating on simplicity, ease of use, and visual directness. The primary colors used reflect this design philosophy.
