web design + creative technology

Colchester Inn

2009 – 2011

Styling, Website Design + Build with Content Management System.

The Useful Arts worked with Public works over the course of 3 years through the course of this project, building an initial site to allow them to document and map the process of the project, then re-developing all of the content gathered into an archive featuring the final works produced.

The Useful Arts also developed an interactive installation for the 'Knick-Knack cloud' project which used RFID tags to allow gallery visitors to pick up items and scan them and be rewarded with the playback of a story about the object. This installation interacted with the contents of the website in real time to record which items were played and chart the popularity of objects, reflected in the interface of the website.
