Amaze (1971)

AMAZE (1971)
Amaze was designed and built (in collaboration with George Maciunas) for Yoko’s 1971 retrospective at the Everson Museum. It is a 16-foot square structure made of clear Plexiglass. The centre cubicle – where a visitor arrived if he or she ‘solved’ the maze – was constructed of one-way-mirror-finish Plexiglas. Occupants of the cubicle could see out in all directions but were mostly invisible to viewers on the outside. This central cubicle contained a toilet.

  2. This maze reminds me of our intestines so we can take the long way home. If you want to take a shortcut, bring a laxative with you.
    Either way you exit through a hole.
    Don’t forget to flush.

Fly in your dream. Spread your wings. See how clear the world really is. See how you never miss a turn. See how you never fall.
