River Liffey (2018)

How would the River Liffey flow through the text of James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake? The Liffey exists as a leitmotif for the Wake and that is brought to the forefront in this digital work. The animation shows an algorithmically generated river flow through the 628 pages of the book, flowing continuously from the last page back to the first, as does the text. The sample video below shows the flow through page 41 of the book.
