The Database Development and Design course culminated in the design and implementation of a relational database of my own invention. Branching off my interest in the intersection of studio practice and information science, I realized a relational database that would serve the painting practice of my art studio. The project was approached in three phases including modeling, implementation, and querying.
I established four principles to approach the realization of my database.
- Data tells a story and its modeling shapes a narrative.
- Experienced this way, a database could be an atomic novel or journal.
- Data is a medium.
- A database is an architecture of things and thoughts.
