Daedalus and Ariadne

The second version of Daedalus and Ariadne uses only one screen, and shows the generation and the solving of a maze, simultaneously. The software that generates the animation uses algorithms to generate and solve mazes, and shows these processes on the screen. The work uses two screens / projectors: one to show the maze generation, and the other to show the maze being solved. At each software interation, another maze is generated/solved.

The first version of Daedalus and Ariadne works with the overlapping of mazes: when a maze is solved, its final path is kept on the screen, creating a confusing drawing.
