Studio in the Park Press | Installation Map
Each piece of puzzlejuice has been hand crocheted out of nylon rope typically used by rock climbers and painted in brightly colored patterns. Every section was created in the artists studio and then transported to this site where the artist spontaneously arranged and composed the piece like a three dimensional collage. This unique process transforms the intimate aesthetic of knitting into a large scale public sculpture while still maintaining the impulsive element of invention. The animated shapes seemingly plopped on the ground like an unfinished puzzle are casually layered and overlapped to create an imaginary terrain that is in obvious contrast to its surroundings. The work weaves in and out of meanings triggering chains of associations and ideas.
