Set Design for Oedipus Rex

Problem: Design a set for “Oedipus Rex” by Sophocles. Solution: Oedipus’ entire fate is predetermined, but throughout the play it is clear that he does not know what is next in store for him. Inspired by this notion of a harsh and predetermined path, I designed a plexiglass labyrinth to act as the play space. The plexiglass boxes are all treated with red scratches to reference how Oedipus gouges out his eyes at the end of the play.
