1. This is a piece I put together for a larger project on James Joyce's Finnegans Wake called Surfing Finnegans Wake.

    Using After Effects and a script I put together for the piece it outlines the characters and plot of the novel in as succinct a fashion as possible given that the text is so dense.

  2. This is piece I did for a project called Surfing Finnegans Wake which was an attempt to demystify the enigma that is James Joyce's novel Finnegans Wake. No mean feat given the fact that on initial examination it feels like you'd have better luck trying to read a word jumble. But with perseverance it can be rewarding in ways that few other novels are.

    Using After Effects this piece attempts to explain the book's context within Joyce's own work and it's importance within the Western Canon as a whole.

  3. This is a piece I put together for a larger project on James Joyce's Finnegans Wake called Surfing Finnegans Wake.

    Using After Effects this piece takes a single sentence from the novel and breaks it down showing that behind the incomprehensible veneer there is forethought, depth and even conventional literary purpose.
