Culture Street

The London 2012 Festival will run until the final day of the Paralympics on September 9. It is a Cultural Olympiad celebrating the arts across the UK  with free and paid events.

“aMAZEme” is just one of the many installations on display throughout the festival. It is an art project that unites literature, performance, installation, image and cinema.

From the London Festival website:

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.

 
Next week, in the lead up to the Olympics, we will be celebrating British writers and looking back at the wealth of literature that celebrates London. We hope you can join us.
