Images of the labyrinth have recurred in disparate human cultures dating back at least 3,000 years. Some people interpret it as a rudimentary map of the human brain, other's use it as a path to the divine. Troy Town is a labyrinth with walls formed of light made visible in the air by vaporous haze. Viewers can chose to follow the labyrinth's path or use their bodies disrupt it's walls. Ultimately Troy Town is an empty room; a geometric sculpture formed of colliding phenomena as opposed to solid matter.
