Coming soon: The Lucid Arts Project
November 3, 2006
The Lucid Arts Project is a hosted application to help artists create a presence on the internet without the hug upfront cost of a custom-built system. The key in this project is to allow the artists to keep their individuality by not “mashing” them together with other artists and other works.
Artists will have their own “portal” which is branded with their own imagery/logo. Users will be able to use their own domain names and will not be limited to subdomains of the lucidarts.org.nz URL.
The Lucid Arts project is built using Ruby on Rails and MySQL and uses AJAX for fading image slideshows and interface enhancement. The content-management system (CMS) is fully custom-built and designed for absolute ease of use because, let’s face it, there are plenty of people who would rather stick to producing beautiful art than learning how to program their own website.
