mapping memento (density design lab.) // 2008

a maze is a traditional archetype representing a long and tangled path to get to knowledge and truth. it is a sort of puzzle that has to be solved (get to the center) and it symbolizes disorientation. all aspects which can be perfectly found in Memento by Christopher Nolan. scene by scene, the beholder who watches the film for the very first time, cannot immediately have an idea of what’s happening but he/she has to collect clues to solve the aenigma. the “user” similarly moves into the maze and turn by turn can unfold the mystery.
