4 and a half feet to the left, behind me

4 and a half feet and to the left, behind me’ follows a man’s journey through the labyrinthine back rooms and chambers of a vast building. The spaces parallel the man’s internal world, as a storehouse’s map of corridors become a physiological geography of his mind. This is evident by his reflection on living with a medical condition known as temporal lobe epilepsy where déjà vu precedes epileptic seizures. Spatial and visual thematics continue as the man describes both his employment as the ‘gatekeeper’ of a museum’s image archive, his mental travels through the online virtual museum collection and his experience as an actor manifesting emotion into 3D space.
