Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira regularly works in both painting and installation, but his latest work at Museu de Arte Contemporânea da Universidade de São Paulo, "Transarquitetônica," may be one of his most fascinating ones yet. Viewers are literally able to immerse themselves in the piece, as Oliveira has crafted a seeming endless maze of tunnels made from warped plywood and rigid concrete. The tightly packed lumber gives the surreal structure eye-catching texture and surface as the viewer is taken out of their normal environment. "Transarquitetônica" will remain on view through November 30, 2014. In the video below, the artist discusses his process of scavenging materials for and creating such a massive structure. Watch after the jump.
