1000 Joyce Walks is a participatory global intervention which aims to
create a day of psychogeographical exploration with 1000 interventions
in 24 hours across the globe.
The project uses the Joyce Walks project to remap routes from James
Joyce's Ulysses to any city in the world to be used as the basis of
walks which navigate urban space in a new and unexpected way .
Based on the Situationist Dérive Joyce Walks is a participatory spatial
tool which overlays virtual layers of meaning over real space enabling
the user to create temporary location based interventions and social
spaces which tactically insert themselves into the urban environment
inscribing a new set of meanings onto the very fabric of the city.
