Abstract

Traditional photo albums are important not only for storing and organizing photographs but also for their ability to display photos in an aesthetically pleasing manner. A beautiful photo album augments the browsing experience for individual recollection or sharing with others. We present a digital photo album that organizes and displays photos in a form based on an ancient accounting device, the Incan khipu. The khipu metaphor provides an overview of the photos in a collection and a historical record of individual albums. This interface is meant to be an evocative and functional interactive display in the home for visitors and occupants alike.
