In other words, Virgil and Lucretius are experts in the crafting of labyrinthine
texts which refuse to expose bluntly a central "meaning," and, while endlessly deferring the conquest of this "prey," exponentially increase the reader's pleasure, thereby assuring their esthetic superiority.
Her environments, seemingly without exit, reveal the impasse of a blocked reality, where one enters and sinks into oneself, as in the corridor she constructed at the 2003 Venice Biennale or in her labyrinthine
sequence of rooms at Manifesta in 2002.
The middle fossa approach provides neurotologic surgical access to lesions of the geniculate ganglion and the labyrinthine
portion of the facial nerve as well as to the internal acoustic canal, and therefore helps preserve cochlear function.
The street is aligned on an axis from the main entrance, strengthening the public route through the building and replacing the original labyrinthine
The editors manage to track the labyrinthine
and often murky paths of Florentine and Italian politics and diplomacy with an authoritative sense both of direction and of the general context, while also breathing life into minor figures in the correspondence in their learned footnotes.
I like the idea of labyrinthine
possibilities of interpretation and, in a way, a kind of intellectual puzzle in the project.
The temporal lobe dura was elevated, and bone was removed from the greater petrosal nerve, geniculate ganglion, internal genu, labyrinthine
portion of the facial nerve, and upper portion of the internal auditory canal until a good view was obtained into the cerebellopontine angle.
Essentially a series of stacked square floor plates that vary in section height the pavillion is a labyrinthine
journey through different sorts of environments.
Behind the narrow, labyrinthine
entrance to the exhibition waited a forest of paintings that remain "dark" in all senses of the word.
With its changing vistas and layered spaces, the labyrinthine

entrails common to every building--then stairs again, and narrow, barely lit halls; suddenly there open before the camera empty, completely white spaces shown in slow motion, so that the visitors move as if in a state of suspension.
Experiments on guinea pigs by Yanagihara and Nishioka showed that these animals experienced a sensorineural hearing loss only as long as there were air bubbles in the labyrinthine
system; once the bubbles were removed, hearing returned to baseline levels.
Above the labyrinthine
galleries, internal coherence is provided by the sensuously undulating ceiling, which follows the route of the stair.
Among the labyrinthine
arrangements of images and text in six examples shown here (all works undated) we find patterns of ships, naval signals, and flags, recalling Bispo's time in the navy as a young man, followed by descriptions of hallucinations, long lists of proper names, and disruptive, self-referential phrases like "Uma obra tao importante que levou 1986 anos para ser escrita" (Such an important work that it took 1986 years to be written).
Each piece is over 4m high and visitors are at liberty to explore their labyrinthine
configurations, experiencing a sense of imbalance, movement and optical illusion as they move around the monumental metal forms.
