Joseph,
 
Are you inferring this (your "interpretation"), or do you know this?
And can you talk more about your desire to make nothing out of
something?
Why "nothing"? What are you trying to "say", if anything?

The irresponsibility Joyce refers to is the artist's right to make
something completely useless--or anti-utilitarian if you prefer.

For myself, as a painter, I refer to the same drive as a desire to make
nothing out of something.
