This is another of those videos that I like specifically because it’s totally surreal and how you interpret it will probably depend on what type of mood you’re in when you view it.
Is this video about being trapped?
Is this video about breaking free?
Is this video about the sad face starting at you from the wall?
Is it about longing or is it about being owned?
That’s up to you to decide. I just like the idea of everyone being stuck in a mentally-projected maze. Whenever I see a video that featured an overhead shot of a maze, I’m reminded of one of my favorite scenes from The Shining, the one where Jack stares down at a model of the Overlook’s famous hedge maze while Danny and Wendy wander through the real maze. Briefly, it appears as if Wendy and Danny are actually in the model. Who knows, maybe they are?
Mazes are a great metaphor for …. well, just about everything! There’s very little in life that can’t be represented by a maze. Of course, in The Shining, the maze represented not only Jack’s twisted mind but also the way that time inside the Overlook twists back in on itself.
