Through the Lens of Demarco
View this hack »

For Culture Hack Scotland.

Richard Demarco attended nearly all of the Edinburgh Fringe festivals over many years, documenting artists who were there with his camera. A lot of money was spend taking 15,000 of his images, scanning them, adding metadata and putting out on the web.

Trouble is, it was 2008 so it’s a Flash site and it’s really hard to find anything.

This was a quick hack. I’m not kidding - the last two hours of the event! Taking the images and making a better experience of viewing them on ipad, mobile and web. Thank you Twitter Bootstrap!
