Pieces

Final Project H.I.T | Guidance: Golan Gafni

Traditionally, art history pieces are analyzed by 5 basics ideas:

Composition, Color, Light, Perspective and Elements. 

In the same way, the site teaches its viewers about art history. This provides a unique experience to receive more knowledge in this field.

The Challenge

How to interest design students in what is considered to be a boring and old-fashioned field?

The Goal

Bring the design students closer to the art history field and open a brand new world that can be utilized in their daily work.

Target Audience

Design students that the art history field is a stranger to them.

Overview

The website talks to designers in their own language and is organized by a list of ideas from the world of design and art.

Today, art history pieces are analyzed by 5 basics ideas: Composition, Color, Light, Perspective and Elements. 

In the same way, the site guides his viewers.

Since the pieces of art are the main focus, the design language is minimalist, but still gives respect for the pieces.

Using the navigation bars, the viewer can find pieces from many different periods and genres to find new pieces and learn about them. 

The website is infinite- same as the learning.

Browsing your term

After choosing your term of interest, a sub-terms index will be displayed, containing all the relevant art pieces.

 

For example, when I choose the term "Perspective", I enter an index contains pieces that represent this term. 

There is an option to filter by sub-terms. I chose to explore the "Vanishing point".

Clicking “What it means?” allows me to read more about the sub-terms.

Now, let׳s choose a piece that looks interesting. I chose "Oath of the Horatii".
