"In a society of increasing control and formulated predictability, one may find inspiration in the beauty of irrationality in nature. Much of our surroundings still do not adhere to the rules and restrictions we set up for ourselves. The simplicity of spontaneous thought and imagination is still part of our humanity, but becoming less and less a part of our conscious selves. Harnessing personal associations, the sound and visuals of this interactive “labyrinth” will be more delightful and exploratory than deliberative. The hope is to slowly remind us of the elements outside our daily grind, of the things that are too easy to forget; illogical things, impractical things. The intention is to induce participants to become open to these quiet, hiding parts of their surroundings."
