Joyce Walks

Joyce WalksJoyce Walks, 2007, Website.

Joyce Walks is a psychogeographical tool which generates walking maps based on routes from James Joyce's Ulysses in any city in the world using Google Maps. The system prints maps to be used as the basis of walks exploring the city of your choice and generates mashups using pictures and videos documenting these walks to share with other users.

Exhibitions: NCAD MA Graduate Exhibition, NCAD Dublin 2007.

Unreliable Narrations

Unreliable NarrationsUnreliable Narrations, 2007, DVD.

Unreliable Narrations is a 12 minute video which scrolls the entire first chapter of James Joyces Ulysses in which all the vowels have been censored. The work is a comment on the stifling and damaging effect of copyright and the corporate enforcement of intellectual property on contemporary culture. By censoring the vowels the work circumvents the defacto ban on public displays of Joyce's work enforced by the Joyce estate but in the process removes all meaning from the text transforming it into a puzzle which the public are invited to solve.

Exhibitions: Screenshow, Temple Bar Dublin, EV+A 2007, Limerick.

A re-imagining of the web presence of the Irish Museum of Modern Art at A two year collaboration with Arthur X. Doyle now archived on Stunned., 2001, Website.

Commissioned by the Project Arts Centre in 2001 for the We're not really Here exhibition I purchased the domain name and for the duration of the show created and published online a series of short pieces on the theme of Temple Bar, Dublin's cultural quarter. Each piece was published as is with no explanation text at this domain name. The project was supported by a Google adwords advertising campaign where the alternative Temple Bar website purchased several Temple Bar related keywords and competed with the 'real' Temple-Bar site in Google rankings.
