To celebrate the expiration of copyright on Joyce’s works in the European Union, Steve Cole has launched a project entitled LiberateUlysses. Here’s how he describes it:
Revisit a chapter, a scene, a theme, or a line from Ulysses and render the impression it made on you in the medium or art form of your choice. Illuminate what you saw, what you felt, so that others can experience what you did as Joyce took you deep into the heart of his Hibernian metropolis. ThisLiberateUlysses blog will chronicle the creative experience of your work in progress and bring the results together in an online exhibition on Bloomsday, 16 June 2012.
This “virtual gallery” of new work inspired by Ulysses looks fascinating and so we gladly pass along the news to our readers in the hope some of you will contribute. When the full collection has been assembled, JJQ will provide a review. In the meantime, Mr. Cole will present the gallery at this year’s Joyce Symposium in Dublin and we will continue to follow the project’s blog and twitter stream (@2lysses) with interest.
