Shift Space

ShiftSpace

From 2007 to 2011 I worked on the ShiftSpace metaweb application. During its lifetime ShiftSpace sought to expand the creative possibilities then provided through the web. The application provided tools for artists, designers, architects, activists, developers, students, researchers, and hobbyists to create online contexts built in and on top of websites. ShiftSpace was initiated by Dan Phiffer and Mushon Zer-Aviv.
