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.
