CODEX explores the links between writing, mystery, subjective experience and a yearning to access the unknown and the ineffable. It creates an inner world and an outer world, juxtaposing the body with the written word, and the written word with the reflected self. It is about inside and outside, accessible and inaccessible, movement and stillness. It is also about the body as manuscript - as a vehicle for conveying an untold but urgent history.
