Some Things About Dublin (Or So I'm Told) Dublin nicknames

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


A selection of Dublin place nicknames from the Or So I'm Told body of work. The nicknames were bluetoothed to peoples' mobile phones as they passed through the Dublin 8 area in Dublins 'Creative Corridor'. ‘Or So I’m Told’ is derived from research into informal accounts of place. The interest in these unofficial accounts stems from a concern regarding the politics of how place is described at a local level.
