THE BANGLATOWN LABYRINTH
Site-Specific Installation 2013
The Banglatown Labyrinth is a conceptual path through London's Banglatown neighborhood, which is mapped on a website and followed by a trail of stickers. The Labyrinth shape is one of the oldest meditation tools dating back to at least the Bronze Age. Practitioners follow its path for a walking mediation. This project bring this ancient symbol into the modern world, incorporating cell phone technology and graffiti sticker bombing. The coils of a 7-ring labyrinth were traced on a google street map of London, UK. To mark the path, graffiti style stickers were stamped all along the route. Each sticker featured a QR code and map of the path. Upon scanning the sticker code, viewers discovered the labyrinth website and access and an informational video about the route.
