“Many correct decisions were made because the way for the wrong one was just not free.” Hans Krailsheimer
Human life involves making both easy and difficult decisions, including ones that affect the life of an individual or an entire community. Labyrinths can serve as a metaphor for human existence. Their intertwined path leads to the center, which represents individual successes and goals, after making a number of sharp turns. Like a person in a labyrinth, electricity also tries to find a way to get through a circuit, whereby it always selects the shortest path.
In the project “Kurzschluss” an electronic decision making circuit is constructed in the shape of a labyrinth.The form of the circuit thereby shows what its function is.
