A Brain Scaled By a Machine

On the surface, the image may look like a large, complex, free-hand drawn maze. However, I created this labyrinth (it’s a “labyrinth” because it contains no choices or dead-ends) by creating only two maze forms that repeat across the grid at different rotations.

The maze was inspired by the evolving interplay between humans and machines. We often see humans identify jobs for computers to perform. However, I believe we’re going to increasingly encounter the inverse: systems where machines identify problems for humans to solve. The labyrinth plays with the concept by placing human touch, two free-hand drawn mazes, within the larger context of a formal structure. The human contribution is scaled through automated repetition and transformation.
