Collaborative Activities

While cloud storage and web-based platforms have changed the way we access and organize digital information, the file management paradigm of desktop operating systems has remained virtually unchanged since the advent of the personal computer.

This speculative interface attempts to reimagine the macOS Finder from a collaboration-centered perspective, presenting the Activity Stream, a new way of browsing content being worked on within a team. Export mechanisms and an inbox view additionally provide ways of moving content between applications without dealing with a hierarchical file system.
