A labyrinth makes us aware of our involvements with space. Walking its path summons questions of where we are in the world and in which direction we are headed. 

This work is a precursor to a larger labyrinth planned for later this year on the south-west periphery of the Natuurbegraafplaats ‘De Utrecht’. It is made from pieces of Shou Sugi Ban, an ancient Japanese technique that preserves wood with fire. The act of walking the labyrinth allows the grieving soul to draw a line with the feet; exploring space with the body whilst contemplating an outcome in the mind.
