Atlas Of No Direction Home
Grafik- & Informationsdesign
Projektbeschreibung von Philipp Doringer:
"The Atlas Of No Direction Home is a database filled with all the locations relevant to Bob Dylan’s career. It lists all the places mentioned in his songs, the towns where his studio albums were recorded, the venues of his tours, and other places that played an important role in his life.
Dylan, who has been on the road since the 1960s, has played roughly 100 dates a year for the entirety of the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s—a heavier schedule than most other performers. Being on tour for almost one third of the year and practically the entirety of his life poses the question: where does someone like Bob Dylan call home?
Places are also a big theme in his song lyrics, with over 100 songs referencing them. His studio albums were also recorded in many different locations.
Besides the database, maps in this book will help to show and interpret the flood of the places relevant to Bob Dylan’s life.
The end of research for this book was the 30th of May, 2018. Since Dylan is still on the road touring around the world, the Atlas Of No Direction Home will not be finished with this publication. It will be an unfinished book and will be republished every year, again and again, filled with all the new tour dates until Bob Dylan plays his last concert and finally settles down at a place that he calls home.
At this point, the Atlas Of No Direction Home will also be finished."
