Labyrinth of 250,000 books
"The cavalcade of art projects surrounding the 2012 Summer Olympics in London continues... with the completion of this enormous book maze
designed and built by Brazilian artists Marcos Saboya and Gualter Pupo (and over fifty volunteers) at Southbank Centre."
"Entitled aMAZEme, the stacked and twisting labyrinth based on a fingerprint belonging to writer Jorge Luis Borges
was built using 250,000 remaindered, used, and new books,
most of which are on loan from Oxfam and will be returned after the exhibit."
"The piece covers over 500 square metres, with sections standing up to 2.5 metres high, and will be on display in the Clore Ballroom through August 25."
"Watch the time-lapse video below to see the entire project come together — the volunteers worked through the night for five days to finish in time."
