As part of the London 2012 Festival, Brazilian artists Marcos Saboya and Gualter Pupo sculpted a maze made out of books. The instillation, called aMAZEme, was inspired by librarians and lauded author Jorge Louis Borges' stories, which were both figuratively and literally labyrinthine.
Getting lost in a book is one of life's greatest pleasures, so we imagine getting lost among books would be even more enjoyable!
According to the event's website:
By participating in the installation, the audience discovers new textures, images and emotions. They become surrounded- hypnotized – by words and thoughts, designs and patterns. There appear to be secrets hidden in the installation’s walls; walls of up to 2.5 metres high, built from thousands of books, forming a large Maze of more than 500 square metres.
This isn't Saboya and Pupo's first literary collaboration. They also crafted a book sculpture in a mall in Rio de Janeiro.
