Within and Above
Mazes contain a dichotomy of order and disorder within their winding corridors - disorder from within (confusion, disorientation) and order from above (symmetry, repetition). It’s a matter of perspective. A maze organizes space without the use of rooms. It consists only of passageways. Where rooms are designated specific purposes, a maze is only a transitional space. The purpose of a maze is to get through it. It exists in order to be exited. Navigating a maze is a game of exploration, wandering, decision-making, wrong turns, frustration, play and pointlessness. Within and Above searches for order within disorder and celebrates the act of getting lost.
