Artstor Arcades, Web App
Artstor Arcades is a gamified, crowdsourcing platform developed to gather metadata for the D. James Dee Archive, a vast collection documenting New York’s contemporary art scene of the past 40 years. Contributing players scored points and ‘leveled-up’ as they described the images.
The compiled data allowed experts to quickly catalog and release the images for scholarly use— a task once thought unimaginable since none of the images were labelled. Arcades was profiled in the Chronicle of Higher Education and noted by The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design. In collaboration with Artstor Labs.
