The intervention Labirinto (Labyrinth) was exhibited in all the main parks in São Paulo: Ibirapuera, Villa Lobos, Juventude and the Tietê Ecological Park.

Made out of 100 tons of recyclable material and acrylic mirrors, the work, a geometrical composition, took the form of a 400 square-meter labyrinth with two entrances/exits.

All of the material used was received on-loan from recycling cooperatives and later returned. In other words, there was no waste. I also organized guided tours for the visually impaired, as the work has the capacity to stimulate other senses, such as touch, smell and hearing.

The spectators were invited to enter the labyrinth and feel their way along the walls of solid waste in search of a way out. The main idea was to confront the public with the garbage it generates.
