An immersive sensory narrative spatially woven of architecture, performance and installation.
The person suffering from [psychogenic fugue] creates in their mind a completely new identity, new friends, new home, new everything - they forget their past identity . . . It’s about a condition, a human sort of condition. How people can become in trouble, mentally . . . people led into situations that become increasingly dangerous. And it’s also about mood and those kind of things that can only happen at night.
— David Lynch

The Cinematic Psyche

The piece was inspired by the non-linear narrative structures in the films of David Lynch, as expressed through the fluidity of character identities and splitting of the psyche. Pre-recorded video and live performance combine to blur the line between inner space of the mind (fantasy) and that of external (reality). The design allowed for the shifting of focus between the two realities, between foreground and background. Gradually, the two worlds begin to merge, leading up to the decomposition of logic and revealing the instability of perceived reality.

It’s like when you are sitting alone, you sometimes have the feeling that there are different parts of you. There are certain things that you can do and there are certain things that you would never do unless there was a part of you that took over.
— David Lynch
