INTERACTIVE /// SIDESHOWS @LINCOLN CENTER /// WEBSITE /// IA + COPY + ART
I co-founded SIDESHOWS with 4 partners in 2010 in collaboration with the Big Apple Circus in Damrosch Park at Lincoln Center. An 8-16 event music-meets-the-circus-under-the-big-top music festival was our original goal. The recession thwarted our most ambitious efforts, however Time Magazine deemed SIDESHOWS "one of the best" of 2010. Sponsorship corralling, talent coordination, general production, design/writing/research/IA, you name it. I tasked it. ||| WEBSITE FEATURES: Over 85 unique frames ••• animated rotating 'big top' spiral background ••• animated slide shows ••• 'magnetic' social networking/radio player bar with a semi-opaque roll out info drawer ••• scroll which collapses and expands with user movement to match height of screen device ••• shuffling Flickr/Twitter/Facebook/Info modules ••• Facebook blog feed ••• 'spotlight' mouseover effect which darkens all but the highlighted artist when scoping talent content ••• Convenient "Back to All" and "Top" buttons.
