AHRC Cultural Engagement post-doctoral post Feb May 2013. Nora O Murchu is a curator and designer. Her research at CRUMB explores experimental approaches to curating new media art and examines current economic, political and cultural factors that are shaping networked culture, and the artistic responses to them.

She received her PhD in 2012 from the University of Limerick. Her research examined online practices of open source users and provides an in-depth analysis of this practice for an Interaction Design context. In addition she suggests curation as a research method for Interactions designers, and provides a detailed account of how this methodology can foster creative innovation for end-users to work as designers in the context of their everyday lives.

She has worked as a research associate for the Interaction Design Centre at the University of Limerick, and the Interaction Research Studio at Goldsmiths , where she has consulted on a broad range of topics, including open-ended design methods, health informatics, and web platforms. She was a researcher on the Tidy Street project, an EPSRC project between the Open University and Goldsmiths that examined the shared energy practices of a small community in Brighton, England.

She is the founder and creative director of Tweak, a digital art and electronic
music festival that took place in Ireland from 200810. She has produced exhibitions and events ( for Trinity College Dublin and the Science Gallery and has curated the work of Golan Levin, Casey Reas,, Anthony Antonellis, Daniel Miller, Gregory Chatonsky, Tristan Perich, and Benjamin Gaulon.
