Abstract

We present a design for recapitulating walks through Dublin's City Centre by characters in James Joyce's Ulysses. Our computationally supported walkers will avail themselves of a "map with a sense of time" and a system that translates their hand lettering gestures as attributes of colourful typographic forms. Participants will walk around Dublin, read passages from Ulysses, and write reflections of their experiences. Their colourfully transformed reflections will blend with others' to create a pluralistic account of today's Dublin, organised according to the sequence of Joyce's descriptions. The experiment will help us to refine initial versions of the two digital systems while suggesting future directions for comparable story systems and techniques such as ad-hoc networking for distributed story making and telling. These developments will serve our larger agenda of exploring individuals' engagements, expressions, and learning with and through such systems.
