Cretan Labyrinth

This, the first in a series of maze-related movies, is a classic Cretan-style labyrinth. This Mandala-like pattern, (like the Yin-yang symbol) has been used in artwork for thousands of years. You may have walked thru a garden maze following this design.

Unlike the kinds of mazes we typically solve with pencil and paper, a labyrinth has no branches in the path, thus there is no difficulty in solving it.

Although I chose to render this maze by writing an actionscript program, it would have been far simpler for me to have drawn it in Flash. The next few movies, however, are another story.
