Inka is a social network concept and it's prototype for the DCA printmaking workshop in Dundee (university work with Rich Cahill and Dean Taylor) which would encourage both people from outside to visit the workshop and the members to interact with them and each other more, sharing insights on printmaking craft, experience and artworks. I wrote an article about this project on my university blog.
