aMAZEme


An art project that unites literature, performance, installation, image and cinema. Created by Marcos Saboya and Gualter Pupo, aMAZEme immerses the audience in a labyrinth of books.

The audience unexpectedly come into contact with the books installation, which stimulates their curiosity, knowledge and creativity. By participating in the installation, the audience discovers new textures, images and emotions. They become surrounded- hypnotized – by words and thoughts, designs and patterns. There appear to be secrets hidden in the installation’s walls; walls of up to 2.5 metres high, built from thousands of books, forming a large Maze of more than 500 square metres. The construction of the labyrinth and the public's participation will be filmed by video cameras and sent to the “aMAZEme" website as well as to social media sites. Touch screens will be installed to look up information and to screen content, which will also be shown in monitors throughout the installation.

The public will be able to navigate through this hypnotic and surprising “book labyrinth” or attend daily performances from literary figures.
