Photo Khipu: organizing a public record of social transaction
Traditional photo albums are important not only for storing and organizing photographs but also for their ability to display photos in an aesthetically pleasing manner. A beautiful photo album augments the browsing experience for individual recollection or sharing with others. We present a digital photo album that organizes and displays photos in a form based on an ancient accounting device, the Incan khipu. The khipu metaphor provides an overview of the photos in a collection and a historical record of individual albums. This interface is meant to be an evocative and functional interactive display in the home for visitors and occupants alike. Keywords Visualization, Photo Sharing, Social Computing ACM Classification Keywords H5.3. [Group and organization interfaces]: Collaborative computing, Organizational design
