Communication Front Interface

Communication Front, Plovdiv, Bulgaria

An interface to fifteen artists web projects produced during Cfront00. The interface reflects the collaborative nature of the workshops and the effort that went into discussion and translation. Using the sketches people made to communicate their projects to each other, or to communicate while collaborating, the interface accesses different projects depending on the combination of icons clicked. Instead of conforming to useability conventions this interface attempted to reflect the conditions of its production as a conceptual project.
