The maze isn’t the first collaboration between Saboya and Pupo; the duo previously worked together to create a smaller book sculpture in the Leblon shopping mall in Rio de Janeiro (pictured above). That project featured many of the same elements that will be on display at the London maze, but it was much less ambitious. Judging from the plans, the aMAZEme maze in London looks like a maze you could actually get lost in!
The maze was inspired by legendary Argentinean writer Jorge Luis Borges, who had a lifelong fascination with both libraries and labyrinths. The aMAZEme installation will be part of the 12-week London 2012 Festival, which will showcase artists from all over the world in conjunction with the 2012 Summer Olympics. Want to get involved? Head over to the Southbank Centre from July 26th – 30th and lend a hand!
