“Fighting a relentless battle with the ghosts from the past, the only way forward is through the labyrinth of the mind.” Labyrinth embodies a metaphysical journey to the desolate depths of my mind where traumatic memories from the past have festered over time. It’s a poetic reflection on the effects these memories have had on my mental state, identity, relationships, and the present. Through images and text, Labyrinth examines these memories and the associated notions of time and history, all bound up in this architectural space employed as a metaphor for the mind, where these poignant memories prevail.
