 ABOUT Rookery

Launching early 2020

Rookery is our flagship product. Our experience curating and archiving exhibitions inspired us to design custom software. Built on an elegant and dynamic database, our software enables people to organize and annotate art, and curate collections into virtual rooms. Our team of experts offer custom services to help speed up the archiving process.

About Robin

Our sample user lives in New York and owns 100 artworks (20 can be seen below). She hired us for 5 days of intake, and a month of analysis. We identified and photographed all the artwork, and scanned all the accompanying documentation. We interviewed Robin about the collection, and voice recorded all the stories she had of her favorite pieces. We created a floor plan and 3D model of her house.
