The Olympics isn’t the only thing happening in London this summer. As part of the London 2012 Festival, a gargantuan maze will be created using 250,000
Starting July 26 through July 30, this installation, called aMAZEme, will be spearheaded by Brazilian artists Marcos Saboya and Gualter Pupo but constructed by the public. The walls are expected to be 13 feet high and the labyrinth will ultimately be over 5,000 square feet.
Once complete, the public will be able to walk through this hypnotic maze of books. Inside, a number of surprises await! Small screens will be installed throughout the labyrinth which will show art images and literary quotes. In addition, various authors will be reading their books inside the maze, “adding life to the project via oral tradition.”
The artists hope visitors will be able to discover new textures, images and emotions while being immersed inside the world of books. At the end of the exhibition, the public is encouraged to take any of these new and used books home with them.
