Episode 18, Penelope
Ulysses, a modernist novel by James Joyce. It is considered both a literary masterpiece and one of the hardest pieces of English literature to read. The novel owns the number 1 spot on the most difficult novels to read list by Good Reads. The final chapter in the novel consists of a 4,391 word single sentence, a sentence that deploys a variety of progressive and bewildering literary techniques to communicate an unfiltered stream of consciousness of the character Molly Bloom.
Rethinking the novel format for this literary concept by James Joyce - A modified dot matrix printer was developed to allow for the stream of consciousness of Molly Bloom to be perpetually printed over several hours, resulting in a single 17 meter long print.
A project that pays homage to James Joyce's experimental use of the English language. Manifested in both installation and publication formats.
