Enter the Root Labrynth

Transarquitetônica is a larger-than-life cavernous root system that visitors can enter and explore. The installation was designed and built by Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira and can be found at  the Museu de Arte Contemporânea da Universidade in São Paulo through November 2014. The exterior skin of the structure has been constructed from discarded wood strips that Oliveira reclaimed from construction sites- the same material used in the construction of Brazilian favelas (shanty towns). And from the inside Transarquitetônica appears more like an alien mine system of impressive size. Here are some images from the installation, as well as a video:
