43.  AIM   -  An app designed to celebrate the exciting possibilities of mobile photography.  This is an endeavour to move away from current trends in photography applications that encourage post-processing of images with filters and editing tools.  It brings you back to basics.  As a playground for photography, AIM  invites users to critically explore and creatively engage with the Front Square (TCD) to produce attractive, striking and intuitive photographs.

(Students:  Aoife O'Mullane, Conor Lacey, Stephen Maguire and Shane Mitchell; Supervisor: Marcos Dias).

44.  Feed - A geolocative social media app which allows users to take a photo at a location and post it with some text.  Users are presented with a newsfeed which displays any posts made within a certain distance of their current location. Posts are given limited life span before they die but users can choose to feed a post, which will repost it from their location, spreading it through geographical space and keeping it alive. Feed thrives in busy environments with lots of people such as cities or festivals. It is a way for information to be spread through physical space from a single point of origin.  

(Students:  Sean Redahan, David Delahunty, David Pearse, and Biliana Valeva;  Supervisor: Rachel O’Dwyer)

45.  QRKY - A web-based app and corresponding analytical website which aims to explore the truth and fallacies behind 15 'quirky' myths about the University. The project culminated in the launch of a location based trivia app guided by aesthetically pleasing laser-cut QR codes posted in various locations throughout Front Square. Capitalising on the locative nature of QR codes, each laser-cut piece was posted in an area significant to an associated piece of trivia or myth. The project title, QRKY, is coined from the word 'quirky' and the acronym for Quick Response Code, 'QR'.

(Students: Team Members: Lorraine Doyle, Brian Casey, Cathal Gearty and Aoibheann O Daly Supervisor:  Dr Mads Haahr)

46.  - A web-based interactive 3D exploration of the hidden and visible rhythms pervading Trinity’s Front Square.

(Students: Aoife Moriarty, Kieran Murray and Ciaran McGrath: Supervisor: Feargal Fitzpatrick )

47.  Tetralogy - An interactive digital media project consisting of four outdoor digital media installations and an accompanying web platform, designed to take different responses from users and lead them to an enhanced understanding of Trinity's Front Square as a place. 

(Students:  Louise Noone, Shane Finan and Gary McDermott; Supervisor: Marcos Dias)
