Generous Interface Fashion

Build Status

This project was created within an evaluation of generous interfaces as a complement to common web interfaces of archives and museums often dominated by text search. This prototype is centered around images, fashion and the history of dress and costume. The intended user of the prototype is a person with deep interest in the topic and who is an active hobbyist producing her own designs or clothes. She could be a cosplayer, a reenactor, or simply someone who likes to make vintage or historical clothing.

The project is a partnership between the National Heritage Board, the Nordic Museum, the Museums of World Cultures, the National Museum of Art, and Malmö Museums.

Note that our prototype does not currently work in Internet Explorer and we're not likely to change that. The reason being we view the prototype as being a concept prototype and demonstrator (a minimum learnable product) rather than a pre-cursor to a operational product.
