Get ready for the public art display of your dreams (or at least, my dreams).
Busan's most popular public art attraction.

There's something to be said for the trope of the labyrinth--confusion, discovery, loss, mystery. Theseus and the Minotaur, David Bowie's eponymous film, the various creatures of a little girl's frightened imagination.
