Mediated Matter

MIT Media Lab, Cambridge MA
matter.media.mit.edu

I developed a new Content Management System (CMS) for the Mediated Matter group at the MIT media lab.

Neri Oxman leads the group and has her own version of the site at neri.media.mit.edu

The site design is based on an existing site that was built in WordPress.  The client liked the look of the site but was unhappy with the site's instability and inflexibility.

So, I am taking the basic styles of the existing site and building it into ExpressionEngine® (EE) to make it easy to manage so inexperienced editors cannot have a negative impact on the quality of the site. I am also making small improvements wherever possible including implementing a lightbox slideshow instead of the on-page image loading as it is now so that we can show much larger images as well as allowing the site to load faster.
