Main goal: Create a collection and a means for its display.
In this project, each designer will create a chronologic website based on a collection of books they have read or otherwise encountered. Each project should contain a map or diagram representing relationships among the selected titles as well as a “chronology.”
Try to span roughly the last decade. Note those books (or if you'd like to also use films, records, or other works of art/design, that is fine too) that have had a meaningful, memorable impact on your life and practice. What has helped form the YOU of the present? What have you read that has been significant to the formation of your identity or the direction or content of your work?
Turn this chronology into a cleverly designed, hyperlinked narrative of your life and/or work through the lens of these other texts or works. Make design choices that correspond to you, the books, and any other content you’ve referenced. Think about the site architecture, format, what sort of “content” this might contain, etc.
The goal here is to deal with a variety of kinds of content, begin dealing with a quantity of information, build a site-plan for said material, learn some good HTML syntax and structure, put to use some CSS positioning, and to find an interesting way to display it all.
Have this live on either your server or on github for discussion in class.
