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.
