ArtJunk is an online-based platform that allows its users to share materials found left on a street.
More importantly, it provides an exact location of the things found and shared. Thus, materials shared can be easily located and picked up by anyone.
It is an ongoing project developed together with an artist Kentaro Yamada. It currently exists in a form of a mobile website with an additional access through an IOS application.
I have joined this project by creating an identity, researching and developing interactions within a system.
A significant stepping stone for ArtJunk was being featured in a technology festival ‘Makers Faire’
(London 2014). A successful run at a ‘Makers Faire’ helped to increase ArtJunk’s user base by nearly a half.
To this day, it is of 200+ users. Yet to become a fully functioning system, dynamics within user groups still have a lot to evolve.
