DESCRIPTION

 

The windows of the Donnell Library will be

the host of a visual labyrinth that encourages

the public to find its way through by means

of a systematic series of questions proposed in

the form of visual metaphors and riddles.

 

Employing a fun and satirical take on

the language of scientific surveys, this visual

labyrinth is designed to both utilize and

challenge facets of psychology, astrology, and

religion that attempt to categorize the

human condition into a few distinct personality

types. As the viewers move from left to

right, they are challenged with thought-

provoking visual questions — sometimes

whimsical, satirical, and abstract. In the end,

each individual will reach a conclusion

offering various pseudo-scientific and spiritual

explanations and advice. The experience

offered has the potential to be not only self-

revelatory but it also proposes the possibility

of a communal sense of discovery.
