The Pygmalion Effect: ‘Students were given rats from two groups, one described as “maze dull” and the other as “maze bright.”’

Learning about The Pygmalion Effect and this paragraph caught my attention… “Students were given rats from two groups, one described as “maze dull” and the other as “maze bright.” Researchers claimed that the former group could not learn to properly negotiate a maze, but the latter could with ease. As you might expect, the groups […]

“Ada yang Putra Putrinya baru pertama kali belajar puasa? . . Ajak si kecil menyelesaikan labirin ini saat menjelang berbuka ya moms.. 😉”

It’s Ramadan and this caught my attention… This image visually weaves together two of my parallel projects, this, The City of Labyrinths Project and my 30 Masjids in 30 Days of Ramadan project. Another stepping stone in my understanding of Labyrinths in Islam. Ada yang Putra Putrinya baru pertama kali belajar puasa? . . Ajak […]

“🤔” – Neal Jennings – Spyglass Place Labyrinth – Vancouver

I kind of surprised how much more this stone Labyrinth I made at the south end of Spyglass Place has been photographed and shared online, compared with my guessing that it might be so when I began placing the first few rocks… “🤔” Indeed. 🤔 A post shared by Neal Jennings (@nealjennings) on May 19, […]

“Amália ⬆” – Wading Pool Labyrinth – Christie Pits Park – Toronto

Product Placement inside the Centre of my Christie Pits Park Wading Pool painted Labyrinth . . . This is a good look at the north-west quadrant of the Labyrinth. I will really need to re-paint it when I am back in Toronto. Thankful that I did three coats of paint the last time I repainted, […]

“Found some colourful footprints on the way to work!” – Amy Massiah – 6th & Fir Park – Vancouver

I chalked a little Labyrinth about a month ago… and apparently, it might still be there! As a design motif, many of my Labyrinths include chalk outlines of my shoes stepping towards the entrance. These footprints are, or were, made in 6th & Fir Park, located beside the start of the Arbutus Greenway. Found some […]

“When I was a kid (4th or 5th grade), I loved drawing mazes. I took a small notebook of them to school and a classmate offered to pay me a nickel for one.” – Ryan Green

When I was a kid (4th or 5th grade), I loved drawing mazes. I took a small notebook of them to school and a classmate offered to pay me a nickel for one. He showed his friend, who also wanted one. I got another nickel. Word spread, orders flowed, and my pencil scribbled more mazes. […]

“This way to the Matrix…” – Eric Michael – False Creek Seawall – Vancouver

Quite surprised how long lasting this chalk Labyrinth has turned out to be. Perhaps there are unique conditions at this very spot, the material of the paver bricks, the sea air around this pocket of South East False Creek, and being a corner that is less frequently walked upon yet beside the desire line of […]

“Lovely commute today!” – Cathleen Gingrich – Heart Chalk Labyrinth – Science World – Vancouver

I have been by this pocket square along the seawall south from Science World many times. This location is almost impossible to not pass by and look at the view. Perhaps two weeks ago, someone had outlined a giant heart using roses and stems. It was wonderful and instantly became a must-photograph destination spot. The […]
