Journey To The Centre Of The Memory Palace is an exploration into the symbolic language and mytho-poetics that make up the entire history of the human and non-human experience.
As part of this ongoing study, introductory essays cover topics of esotericism, ancient architecture, cosmology and philosophy, which intertwine with the ever-changing topology of the human psyche from pre-history to the present date.
This project aims to contextualise, preserve, enlighten, dispel and inspire insights from the deepest archetypes of collective memory and to present mythology and folk memory as valuable tools for re-aligning the self and society towards the sacred, inner workings of nature.
