A different kind of labyrinth

Stuck in my bed all day Sunday I was reminded of the fingerprint labyrinth which Maggie Dawn linked to last week. Labyrinths became very fashionable fin de siecle (1999) and were reconstructed in various cathedrals and festivals as an aid to prayer. The big 'un is in Chartres Cathedral, dates from 1200 and is laid into the floor.  Basically you walk to the centre of the labyrinth reflectively – and then walk out again. Using a fingerprint is a great update and  moves away from tendencies to pomp and theatricality.Its a funny time at the moment. Our public spaces are up for renegotiation. But so are our private spaces too. Enjoy.
