Journey To The Centre Of The Memory Palace is an exploration into the symbolic languages of ancient history.
Through the mytho-poetics contained within the entire history of the human and non-human experience, this ongoing study covers topics of esotericism, ancient architecture and cosmology, as well as philosophies relating to sound, sacred spaces and ecology.  
This project aims to contextualise, preserve, enlighten, dispel and inspire insights from the deepest archetypes of collective memory, to present mythology and folk memory as valuable tools for re-aligning the self and society towards the sacred.
