Noema: Wi-Fi performance at the ReJoyce festival
The projection took place in Dublin from June 12 to June 17, 2004, at The Globe and the Market Bar, as part of the "Wandering Rocks" project.
In abbreviated form, the Wandering Rocks, Revolving Doors project, based on the 10th episode of James Joyce’s Ulysses, involves the installation of 19 separate pieces by 22 internationally based artists in public spaces throughout Dublin. Together these pieces create a unique portraiture of Dublin through mirrored glimpses into other cities. These pieces are parallel urban vignettes, inspired by the 19 sections of “Wandering Rocks”, based in the artists' experience in their own resident city, and intended to both update and expand on the perspectives offered by the Joyce's Dublin of 1904. The project's hope is to truly represent the diversity of urban experiences in today's random echoing world by including collaborators from places as dispersed as Helsinki, San Francisco, and Mexico City.
Wandering Rocks, Revolving Doors
The 10th "chapter" (aka Wandering Rocks) of James Joyce's Ulysses, is a snapshot of the streets and people of Dublin at 3pm on June 16, 1904. Each chapter of the book is associated with a different body organ, art, technique and symbology. That of Wandering Rocks is as follows
The chapter is divided into 19 sections, some of which follow individuals as they move throughout the streets of the city, while other fragments are more static, human still-lives, if you will. The people of these fragments bump into, evade, actively seek one another, while in general accomplishing very little else.
