An animated map of Ulysses' Dublin by Aimee Stewart
I started this infographic in the hope that if I could visualise James Joyce's Ulyssesâ€”considered one of the most complex works of modern literatureâ€”I could visualise anything! This was a mammoth undertaking, not having read the book before. The novel needs to be made more accessible, especially to us Dubliners, so I hope this helps.
An animated narrative was overlaid onto a map of the city as described in the novel. Included was a visualisation of the Gilbert schema which Joyce wrote to help his friend, Stuart Gilbert, understand the structure of the book. To mark the celebration of Bloomsday, the final infographic was incorporated into a walking map for The Bailey pub in Dublin.
