Bloomsday is an annual celebration of James Joyce’s Ulysses that takes place on June 16. The novel takes place over the course of a single day, June 16, 1904, with 18 episodes that correspond to Homer’s Odyssey. Each of the 18 chapters of the book were transformed into installations of art objects, structures, sounds, videos, performance, food, and more. Celebrating Joyce’s “enraptured paean to the world of the physical senses,” our Bloomsday was an ambulatory experience that mirrored Joyce’s prose in all its juicy, uncompromising, vulnerable, fragmented, and synesthetic confusion.
