A pyramid shaped, glass walled labyrinth created by Robert Morris has been installed in the Donald J. Hall Sculpture Park at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City. The work is commissioned by the museum to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the sculpture park.
Here is the museum description of the work by the Kansas City native artist: “In form and material this labyrinth is a departure from the more familiar circular and rectangular labyrinths of old. Triangulated and constructed of glass plate walls capped with bronze, it speaks to the present in the language of modern architecture and design–streamlined, dynamic, transparent, and elegant.”

Argentinean artist Leandro Erlich is known for installations that seem to defy the basic laws of physics, challenging audiences’ sense of reality. In Erlich’s own words: ‘We usually take familiar spaces for granted; I find them important because this is where life actually happens. The ambition is to create a fiction from the ordinary.’
Erlich’s works also draws inspiration from film directors like Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch and Roman Polanski.
