This awesome indoor maze is an interactive art installation currently on exhibit at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC. It’s the work of the Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), a Copenhagen and New York-based, internationally active group of architects, designers, builders and thinkers.

The BIG Maze is a vast labyrinth of Baltic birch plywood covering an area of roughly 60 square feet. It’s full of twists and turns made of up walls of varying heights that are18 feet tall at their tallest points. Those walls slope in toward the center of the maze, which enables visitors to see more of it as they progress through it. Upon reaching the heart of the maze viewers are rewarded with a complete view of the wooden labyrinth that surrounds them.

"‘The concept is simple: as you travel deeper into a maze, your path typically becomes more convoluted. What if we invert this scenario and create a maze that brings clarity and visual understanding upon reaching the heart of the labyrinth?’, explained Bjarke Ingels."

This design also means that exiting the maze is much easier than solving it. The BIG Maze will be open to the public through September 1, 2014.

Against the Infinite - Crazy Three Dimensional Art by AJ Fosik

You might recognize AJ Fosik as the artist responsible for the cover of Mastodon's 2011 record The Hunter. These pictures are from his solo exhibition “Against the Infinite” currently running until December 21 at the Jonathan Levine Gallery. The coup de grâce of the show is a collection of 30 animal heads on diamond-shaped panels that can be combined to form a giant 30-sided shape called a rhombic triacontahedron.
