SETTING: A LABYRINTH THAT DOESN’T ALWAYS RESEMBLE A LABYRINTH
Another ridiculous falsehood has it that I am a prisoner. Shall I repeat that there are no locked doors, shall I add that there are no locks? Besides, one afternoon I did step into the street; If I returned before night, I did so because of the fear that the faces of the common people inspired in me, faces as discoloured and flat as the palm of one's hand.
BORGES - LA CASA DE ASTERION
To create a space that never existed is what interests me. To create something that has never been. A space that we have never entered except in our minds and our spirits.
This space belongs to us. It belongs to our families.
It is liberty.
It is Europe.
It is what we dream.
