Tim Shear is the Research Technologist with the iRes research group. His current technical explorations are focused around: mobile apps, open source network technologies, physical/environmental interactions within network devices and calm interfaces; his programming supports the artists and researchers in the group.

Tim Shear developed specifications for the technical foundations for both the online version of the project (www.drjohnsonsgarret.net) and the museum installation designed by Jason. Tim used Drupal as a digital hub to power Adobe Flash-based on-screen imagery displayed within Jason?s design. In the online version, users can watch the project grow and can also search through the entries online. Tim brought in Celtic Internet - developers of complex data-driven Internet based applications including Digital Pen & Paper solutions - as the commercial partner and technological consultants to collaborate on the project.

Special thanks to Andrew Harbert, MA Design course leader at University College Falmouth, for his help and advice.
