Magic UX

London design consultancy firm Special Projects have created a unique new mobile app task switching interface they call Magic UX. The project aims to bring the UX of a smartphone more into the physical world by allowing the user to map an app to a spacial location and switch between multiple apps by just moving the phone to the set location, similar to picking up different items on a desk. The app even lets you transfer data between apps for example by "picking up" an image and moving the phone to the email app to attach it.

IAWM Annual Concert

This week I had the pleasure of photographing the IAWM Annual Concert in the Chapel at Trinity College Dublin. The concert featured works from women composers from all over the world and was delivered in spectacular fashion by Kirkos Ensemble and Michelle O'Rourke. You can check out the photos from the concert here.

Book Review: The Information - James Gleick

I picked up The Information: A History, A Theory, A Flood by James Gleick last Christmas on a visit to the amazing Charlie Byrne's Bookshop in Galway. My reason for buying it was part intrigue about how the author could fill a whole book about there being too much information in the world, and partly because I must admit, the cover design drew me in. It took me a while but I finally got around to reading and finished the book this week and I was so happy with the choice I made all those months ago.
