The Office for Contemporary Art Norway was founded by the
Norwegian government with the aim of promoting visual arts and
production in Norway to an international audience, and to stimulate
international exchange in the arts.
I was commissioned to help OCA transition from a flat file, hand
maintained website to something 'more modern' which better
reflected the scope of their work, whilst reflecting their
established, restrained, aesthetic, and help to improve their
My aim in the redesign of OCA.no was: to improve the ability for
the various audience demographics to find the information they are
looking for; to provide a framework for richer documentation of
their projects; to better emphasise the wide range of international
connections OCA has and is developing; to provide an improved
channel for communicating their multiple activities.
The OCA.no website is part publishing platform, part database,
the goal of which is to link together the various practitioners and
organisations OCA work with with how they work with them, to
present a transparent picture of OCAs activities at all levels. As
new relationships are established, and new documentation is
created, the site will unfold into it's full potential creating an
evolving document of OCAs field of influence.
