LOST IN TRANSPARENCY
Artist Robert Morris realized a glass labyrinth in The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art where the idea of getting lost is contrasted with transparency.
A triangular-shaped, glass-walled labyrinth designed by artist Robert Morris is installed in the Donald J. Hall Sculpture Park at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in America. The installation provides visitors with an intimate experience, enticing them to interact with the art by winding through the glass maze.
The installation plays with the idea of getting lost in a labyrinth and seeing the end of it via transparent walls. While the structure seems simple, its creation required a very large team of more than 80 people working on the physical construction of the sculpture, with an additional crew of local and national companies involved in the planning and development.
