  • Folkvine. The ultimate goal of our work is to change the way we think about art and about how we present the stories of artists' lives and work. We design our websites to look, feel, and sound like an analogy for each artist, their life story and the story of their work and community. By using interactivity and linking the sites to their aesthetic sensibility, we seek to present models for online scholarship, ethnographic internet design, and the pleasures of the web. http://www.folkvine.org
