Built on a well designed, open-source relational database, this was one of the first arts websites on the web. Initially put together in 1996 by Chris Thorpe, I took over management and development of the website in 2004.
The website grew organically, with new functionality and UX improvements incementally implemented over the course of its lifespan. In 2011, when I passed on responsibility, the website was serving 160,000 pageviews per month with an average of 1,500 unique visitors per day.
Frontend: HTML5, JQuery
Backend: JSP, MySQL
