PacMan and the Minotaur

Andrei Thomaz

PacMan and The Minotaur have something in common: they live in mazes. Exploring this relation and my interest in mazes, the group of works that compose the PacMan and the Minotaur project were developed. Some of them are games based, others explore the elements of mazes (for example, the algorithms available for generating and solving mazes, and the mazes built with plants). Most of them were made in Flash, but there are also screensavers and some 3D work. Some invites the user to see a maze being built and solved by the computer, others are games where the user has to interact with the work. There are also some projects of sculptures and interventions in public spaces.
