“Blooms Hotel Temple Bar commissioned artist James Earley to give the hotel exterior a Joycean makeover, using it as his canvas, to showcase his interpretation of the main characters of James Joyce’s Ulysses.Similar to the mural, the video (above), by Event Junkies tells the story of Ulysses in a contemporary manner. The footage of the painting coming together is intercut with shots of several Dubliners reciting a quote from the book at key locations mentioned in the text.”
