C.Jung defines this as a place of memories including those which we suppress. As suggested by Alan, the past is nostalgic and hence looks brighter than the present. It hold all those moments and emotions we long for but cannot have. So I thought of two interpretations of this place:
The simple mirror reflects as video clips different moments of a person's life such as a birthday, or childhood memory or a moment with one's parents, or with their loved one or the first day at school. At the same time it reflects the desert. It is a mirror after all.
The pile of vintage suitcases and gramophone reminds me most of the nostalgic past. The animated gramphone will
play some old tunes and the vintage suitcases represent one's
journey so far.
