Catalogs
Index
Connecting thematic commonalities across seemingly disconnected works– such as color temperature, subject-matter, and purposed.
As the name insinuates, the catalog is the central repository of all my work. Each item is displayed in isolation, and initially displayed randomly amongst other works of all types. At the same time, that individual pieces is inter-connected with other pieces via an extensive network of tags.

While I'm currently bumping up against current CMS limitations, the functionality and inter-connected
While tags are meant for more organic discovery, I've also created the index for a hierarchical view of my work. Everything in the site is very systematically organized from the top navigation down through sections, sub-sections, etc.

Unfortunately this also is running up against a few CMS limitations, so there are some sub-categories and tertiary-level content thats not currently included... I'm actively looking for a work around.
