COLLABORATION ARTWORK SYSTEM
Statement
Collaborative Artwork System is a graphical user interface that provides a friendly, online environment for artistic communities, where members are able to share their works and strength their roles in participative and collaborative activities, independently from time and place. This work approaches concepts such as online and mobile media, virtual learning communities, graphical user interface, user studies, and needs analysis. The main characteristic of the system is that it works as a dynamic visual network where communities build their own identities. These identities are created through linking and structuring the organization of their works on the screen.
