US artist and sculptor Robert Morris recently unveiled a fantastic Glass Labyrinth at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas city. Shaped like a triangle and made entirely from giant panes of glass, Morris' labyrinth is no less perplexing than ancient designs made from stone or hedges.
Morris’ glass labyrinth is made from inch-thick glass panes, which are topped with bronze rails and built into a base of concrete paving stones. Measuring 7 feet high, this dynamic see-through structure is shaped like a triangle instead of the more familiar circular and rectangular shapes.
Unlike traditional labyrinths, this transparent piece allows visitors to see each other and the landscape, while wandering around. The aim is to reach the center and then find a way out of the triangular form. Elegant, modern and unique, this stunning glazed piece was designed for people to experience, explore and enjoy.
