1994, 6:40 min, color, sound

To the accompaniment of the only extant recording of James Joyce reading from his own work, Donegan uses a clear cellophane hood and a pane of glass to create another of her "face paintings." The performance is intercut with the artist painting over her own image as it appears on a video monitor, complicating the relation between her performance and the ways that technology both records and redefines the artist's work.

Portions of "Finnegans Wake" from James Joyce reading (Caedmon Records, 1924), the only recording of Joyce reading his work.
