A young man stands watching the burning labyrinth from the shelter of a tree at the 2012 Stockton International Riverside Festival, Trinity Green, Stockton (more shots from the evening below).


As mentioned in my previous post Glowdreaming, Labyrinth was a sprawling maze/communal art project created using recycled wood for Stockton's annual riverside festival finale. It was created by German artist Richard von Gigantikow along with Teesside artists, musicians, and visitors to the maze.


The burning of the labyrinth was accompanied by atmospheric music, and the sound of the fire itself was quite something! Hear the sounds at Sound of Labyrinth at Sirf (43 seconds).
