Maja Renn: It's About Getting Lost

Advisor/tutor: Rachel O'Reilly

Arnhem, June 2016


The text you have in your hands is a compilation of loosely weaved thoughts and stories, fictions and realities. It is an invitation to wander through a labyrinth of virtual corridors, heterotopic landscapes, expanding architectures and infinite libraries, to traverse foggy valleys and swim across wide rivers. The walk is occasionally interrupted by an obstacle or a boundary. Sometimes we follow a path for days only to eventually encounter a dead end. Undaunted we come back to the crossroad, choose another path and continue walking. We walk towards the horizon but it escapes as we approach. A new shelter has to be found every night, only to be left behind again every morning. But where are we heading? Perhaps we only find out when we finally get there.
