A mobile site for swimmers. It provides downloadable high tide calendars for over 100 swimming locations in Ireland.
Tidal predictions are calculated using global tide models derived from 20 years of altimeter and tide gauge data. The high tides are then interpreted as calendars for the current month, and can be downloaded to use as phone backgrounds.

Facebook Partner Centre

In partnership with the Analog Lab.

Griffith Barracks Multi Denominational School
Several pieces in a primary school in Dublin. To begin this project we gathered drawing worksheets from all the children in Griffith Barracks to find out their feelings about school. These provided jumping off points for the project, which evolved into a floor and wall piece in the lobby and a steel sculpture on the roof garden.
The mural and floor piece reference growth, sharing, discovery and the nearby Grand Canal. The accompanying sculpture leads takes elements from the mural and is open to interpretation and discussion.
