The Whole Life

Website design for a publishing platform by the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin.

The platform’s experimental design concept centres a networked mapping of contributions, where each is assigned keywords and a respective scale of relation (promixity). Users can build up, edit and share a custom reading list by selecting individual contributions or wider clusters, expanding their selection into a split-screen or full reader view.

Inspired by the interfacing of online chess gameplay and its associative ‘Portable Game Notation’ format, the map-reader duality was engaged as an opportunity to propose a more situated and contextual reading experience online.
