Project Description

Open Collectives: Interactive Debate is the online companion to the Open Collectives exhibition to be shown at the Venice Biennale. The platform invites visitors to explore collectives through their economics, size, porosity, platform, and governance, provoking new ways of thinking about the design for solidarity today. The online component combines an archive of historical and contemporary precedents with fiery debates on the urgency of collectives amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Accessed via the Web and social media, this debate invites the participation and knowledge from audiences beyond the Biennale Architettura di Venezia. By connecting creative ideas, key words, and archival examples in new ways, our individual thoughts are organized into visualizations that form new collective impressions of how we live together. This position will be developing the interactive interface for the debate. We are looking for a interface designer with familiarity of html, CSS, and javascript..
