Project: Artwork database A working artist needs a tool or set of tools (a database with surrounding tools acceptable) to record artwork information, sales and exhibition information and contact information. This tool will be used by the artist in her studio. The information will not be presented on the internet (although a web-based interface hosted from the artist’s local computer is acceptable). It will not be tied to any shopping interface. It must run natively on a PowerPC-based Macintosh. The data must be exportable in both comma-separated-variable and also an xml format. It must be accompanied with usage documentation. The tool(s) must be extensible, i.e. new fields can be added. Limits Artworks: 2000 Number in edition: 500 Contacts: 10,000 Sales: unlimited (or 1,000,000 = 2000 artworks * 500 in an edition) Data to be recorded: Artwork Piece – common information related to collection of multiple pieces (e.g. an edition of 20 copies) name edition size cost date medium Body of work (e.g. which related group of artwork such as “mementos, Farm, history of technology) Category of artwork (fine binding, “thrifty pick”, edition, installation, “one of a kind”) Description (such as book title/author) artist statement about piece (such as “Text drawn from the Preface and Introduction describe the original …”)
