Well, this is one of the coolest mazes we've ever seen. Belgian studio Gijs Van Vaerenbergh, a collaborative team of Belgian architects and artists, has designed and constructed a massive labyrinth in the central square of a former coal mine in Genk, Belgium. The sculpture uses 186 tons of steel and consists of a kilometer maze of corridors with walls as high as 5 meters.

In his installation Artificial Killing Machine, Jonathan Fletcher Moore takes a dry statistic—the number of deaths of individuals from drone strikes—and makes it tangible. The mechanical installation uses the public database on United States military drone strikes—information collected and vetted by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism—to feed the sculpture, which is made up of independently firing cap guns.

Night forbade by a sunray. Not a bird to be heard, not a herd of grass to clench, no vengeful sun to pray. Mysterious, mesmerizing, onilyrical, the V monoliths, somber giants built by Phillip Ob Rey, shaped as monsters of calm flesh limbs, carved into the lumps of the subterranean, revolve around calm crepuscular sceneries, lunar horizons of a frostbitten Iceland, and question the depths of our unconscious on the After, future of the human race.

Thousands of years after the flames of Ragnarok had burned over the earth and the smoke from the fires blocked the sun from warming the planet, there came a great age of ice. Energies and information of the great gods and giants were scattered and lost across mountains, seas, winds and giant glaciers.

Australian artist Paul Yore is familiar with controversy. His work over the years has been met with intense discussions about censorship and artistic freedom. His art has been seized by police and he has had to defend himself against criminal charges. His work has been described as a "dystopian, fastidiously constructed world drenched in psychedelic color and engaging provactively with issues of gay politics, gender, environmental destructions and capitalist critique."

We posted anamorphic (the art of stacking objects to create a huge 3D sculpture) portrait installations by Bernard Pras before. The artist fills an entire room with found objects, creating a portrait. This morning we take a look at more of the French artist's impressive large-scale compositions.

Philly artist Drew Leshko creates paper-based sculptures of the places we inhabit—apartment buildings, campers, houses, and home-made structures, as well as newsstands, dumpsters and more. The detail on these pieces is pretty unbelievable, especially in person, and you can currently see his solo show at the Delaware Center for Contemporary Art, and in the “LAX/DTW” group show coordinated by Thinkspace Gallery and exhibited at Inner State Gallery in Detroit.

Korean artist June Lee's work is based on the social phenomena of the bystander, what she calls the "Bystander Effect." "Countless things Countless things that happen quietly in our society are cases of bystander effect that make select individuals into outcasts. Thinking how I can become a social outcast due to the distant indifferent bystanders, I find this a serious problem that can’t be overlooked in silence.

Brazilian artists Janiano Mello and Daniel Landini's (Mello + Landini) on-going series of installations feature intertwining ropes that they have unwound and tied to canvases and walls to form structures that look like the roots of plants and trees.
