Radio Österreich 1 presented an artistic collage from Tim Schmelzer in reference to the novel Ulysses of James Joyce.  The subject was presented in June 2015 by a static light projection at the facade of the Radio-Kulturhaus Vienna during a 24 hour audio drama broadcast of Ulysses by Radio Österreich 1. The artistic collage shows in graphic elements the peripatetic appointments and encounters of Leopold Bloom in Dublin in the course of one day, the 16th of June 1904. The “stream of consciousness”, the  stylistic central element of the novel, inspired Tim Schmelzer to his visual speech of orderless fragmentary arrangements of images  in relationship to the adventures of Leopold Bloom.

James Joyce was an Irish novelist and poet. He contributed to the modernist avant-garde, and is regarded as one of the most influential and important authors of the twentieth century. Ulysses chronicles the adventures of Leopold Bloom in Dublin in the course of an ordinary day in 1904. Ulysses establishes a series of parallels between the poem and the novel, with structural correspondences between the characters and experiences of Leopold Bloom and Odysseus, Molly Bloom and Penelope, and Stephen Dedalus and Telemachus, in addition to events and themes of the early twentieth century context of modernism, Dublin, and Ireland's relationship to Britain.
