But since labyrinths are unicursal paths and no-one can get lost in them, Ariadne’s thread would seem useless. But if we think metaphorically the story has a different meaning. Ariadne could be offering Theseus the challenge to enter the labyrinth and face his own fears. The thread is the path or journey through the labyrinth, in fact it’s an actual labyrinth itself.
With these ideas I decided to design a labyrinth in the shape of the thread that follows the path of the Cretan Classical 7 Circuit Labyrinth, also known as Minoan Labyrinth. To learn more about this project watch the video below:
