We describe an application and case study in the design and evaluation of the Art Collection Ecosystem (ACE) | a Rich Internet Application that supports the ability of users to browse and explore art collections using Formal Concept Analysis. With a view of a system that allows browsing of tagged content, 25 participants conducted a usability study within the context of a popular social media website - Flickr. We describe key design elements within its user interface and incorporate re- visions of its design based on user feedback. We incorporate these results into a framework called CollectionWeb - a set of software, services and processes that allows associative and explorative browsing of any kind of collection content over the Web.
