Art: A Labyrinth.

A square labyrinth at right, in front of a dark speckled background.

I will not make a pun with the word /maze/.

Making mazes takes some work. The center has rotational symmetry, while the four outer corners each feature their own flavor. Pretty sure I made at least one mistake, but that’s okay.

It’s a fairly relaxing task, as you’re mostly letting randomness do its thing as you go. While there’s precision involved, it’s a kind of knitting or other handcraft kind of meditative precision that doesn’t require a lot of stop and think. There’s no need to draw a specific kind of line to move the piece forward.

Which is also how maze solving goes, right? You sort of scan the way forward, but you’re not trying to do anything complex, just let your gaze fill in the path until it hits a blind, back up and try again.
