The film’s leitmotif is the labyrinthine structure that combines basic indicia familiar to the human being, for example, horizontal and vertical, as well as the triangle, square and circle. “Labyrinth-Projektionen” traces these signs and signals in everyday life, in the urban environment and in the human body. While this unaccustomed focus and ever-changing image detail may seem somewhat confusing, it provides an ironic and new view of our familiar world. The film simulates a walk through the labyrinth, thereby bringing an age-old sign for humans back to the present.
