Location: Labirinto della Masone, Fontanellato (IT)
The theme of this project was the seduction and the main plant the Acer. Interpreting seduction as illusion, I decided to guide mentally and physically the visitors through a spiral path made of mirrors in which center could be found the Eden Garden. Entering, the guest will perceive the spiral’s optical illusion and will be sucked into its vortex, as well as a seductor capture his prey. Walking inside a close path made of mirrors, trick symbols, the visitor will feel confused, as it happens to the seduced person while the act is taking place. The imperceptibility of the seductor’s action will also be materialized with the use of mirrors on the external faces which will reflect the landscape and will integrate the installation inside the park. When the seducted person will understand the trick and will try to escape the seductor – concretely getting out of the tunnel – it will be too late because he will already be in the center, in the gap, the Eden Garden, the first place where seduction occurred.
