Subject: RHIZOME_RAW: Announcing Joyce Walks a new project by Conor McGarrigle
> Joyce Walks a new project by Conor McGarrigle
> Because somewhere, sometimes it's always Bloomsday.
> Every June 16th in Dublin Joyce enthusiasts celebrate Bloomsday with
> re-enactments of events from Ulysses. Unfortunately not everyone
> can be
> in Dublin for that day but why should that stop you celebrating
> Bloomsday where you want when you want .So as Bloomsday approaches we
> announce Joyce Walks a web 2.0 service which will let you map routes
> from Ulysses to any city in the world so that Bloomsday can be
> celebrated in any place at any time.
> 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
> your pictures and videos documenting these walks to share with
> other users.
> Inspired by the Situationist idea of the Derive Joyce Walks seeks to
> provide the walker a means of exploring the urban environment
> which is
> unique, truly random but removed from a reliance on chance. Although
> based on a fixed route each map generated is unique as it is based
> on an
> individual selection by the user of the center point of their chosen
> city thus every map provides the walker a means of exploring the
> urbanenvironment which although based on routes which are
> predeterminedaccording to a strict adherence to a text is
> individual to them. Of
> course removing these routes from Dublin removes specific spatial
> relevance but they still retain an aura of association which
> creates a
> link between the locations and Joycean Dublin.
> Joyce Walks saves every map generated to a database. These walks, in
> addition to being specific to their creator, form part of a continuum
> where each specific walk performed by any user of the system is
> added to
> an searchable archive of unique performative walks from around the
> world. This archive over time will become a tool to explore and view
> many unique walks in many cities around the world creating a veritable
> web 2.0 psychogeographical rough guide.
> Firefox or Safari browser , in this beta version Internet Explorer is
> not supported, support for IE will be added shortly
> Due to copyright issues between Google and the British Ordnance Survey
> cities in the UK and Northern Ireland are not searchable, we are
> working to find a solution for this.
