The Art Maze is a first-of-a-kind project celebrating the 50th Anniversary of UNESCO World Heritage Sites across the Globe
Just like real life, the visitors of our Art Maze have the opportunity to choose which path to take. The end point hence becomes the starting point; an eternal cycle in which the journey is the destination. We get to reflect on the unique beauty that surrounds us - without losing sight of the big picture.

— Marcus schaefer

In a world where the metaverse is becoming more of a reality, and where online and physical living is fully integrated, this project is about reconnecting Humanity to the beauty that surrounds us, within our natural world, by re-establishing links with our heritage and cultural history.
