Note about the work:
This work experiments with object making incorporating a non linear narrative. The installation acts a surreal fictional scene with an elaborate MacGuffin at the center. The work also features writing in an invented fictional script, (asemic writing). The non-specific nature of the writing encourages the viewer to interpret it symbolically and pays homage to Xenolinguistics and Sigil.
A MacGuffin (sometimes McGuffin or maguffin) is "a plot element that catches the viewers' attention or drives the plot of a work of fiction". The defining aspect of a MacGuffin is that the major players in the story are (at least initially) willing to do and sacrifice almost anything to obtain it, regardless of what the MacGuffin actually is.
