GEORGE KING: LOSE YOURSELF IN LASERMAZE

lasermaze1

George King is a London and Melbourne based architect who works within the disciplines of architecture, art, and design, by creating unique and tailored designs to initiate emotional response. His latest project is an installation called Lazermaze, located along the Dequindre Cut, a former railway line in Detroit which has been converted to a greenway and a walking track.

The futuristic Lazermaze puzzle is formed from three miles of UV wool and over 3000 hand tied knots suspended from an industrial structure of steel scaffolding and chains created for the 2015 Detroit Design Festival, for which the installation has been announced as one of the five winners of a play-themed competition for this year’s Detroit Design Festival.

Lasermaze’s playful structure invites visitors to get lost within a unique surreal space as they journey towards the center.

The fact that visitors are able to see through semi-permeable but physically impassable maze “walls” adds to the challenge of this puzzle, accompanied by the disorienting light effects. The maze has also been designed to create an overwhelming feeling of being lost in a surreal environment as you enter.
