An Odyssey of The Odyssey

An Odyssey of The Odyssey

Writer/director and media artist Lars Jan brings together the worlds of theater, network science, and data visualization to create a trans-disciplinary narrative for the digital age. Collaborating with actor Roger Guenveur Smith, ecologist Eric Berlow, data artist/designer David Gurman, computer scientist Kaustuv DeBiswas, and classics researcher Daniel Powazek, Jan explores the ripple effect of creative influence that Homer’s The Odyssey has inspired across time, space, and culture.  

In conjunction with The L.A. Odyssey Project, an initiative of the Library Foundation of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Public Library.

Co-presented by the Library Foundation of Los Angeles
