A MAZE OF BOOKS

Brazilian artists Marcos Saboya and Gualter Pupo (and over fifty volunteers) have created aMAZEme at Southbank Centre. 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.
