A Crystalline Labyrinth That Will Have You Walking Into Walls…

I could spend hours here…and probably would.

On May 22, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City unveiled a huge installation by Robert Morris in their sculpture park, entitled “Glass Labyrinth.”

As the name suggests, it is a massive labyrinth, made of glass.

The glass is 1″ thick and 7 feet tall. The maze is 62′ x 62′ x 62.’

The structure weighs 968,902 lbs and took two months to install.

There’s only one way in and one way out.

Visitors do find themselves actually walking into walls.

What a beautiful addition.

Here is the artist surveying his work.

The labyrinth’s design draws on a variety of myths and metaphors and combines them with modern materials. As the museum states, it then “transcends time and space to remind us of the power of deeply felt archetypes.”

Please share this amazing creation with your friends.
