Protest Tech

As a supporter of the Pro-Choice movement, since 2011 I have been looking into alternative ways to get the messages out.

Using persistence-of-vision LED designs, I produced bicycle-mounted and handheld devices to display images and to sneak messages onto journalists’ cameras.

In another area, I have developed Twitter bots to highlight the numbers of Irish women travelling abroad for services unavailable in their own country, and hidden wifi hotspots with information and messages for those seeking help.

In May 2018 a majority voted in a referendum to repeal these laws.
