Eye-Q, the Big Book of Visual Puzzles, includes Maciek Jozefowicz's newest puzzle invention, “Architecting”, creating 3D drawings (axonometric) from 2D drawings.
The book contains a variegated collection of original puzzles, more than 200, including “Pattern Square,” “PlusMinus” and “Remembro”, visual puzzles that challenge and develop visual “Eye-Q” says Jozefowicz.
As for “Architecting”, the player is asked to create three-dimensional drawings, axonometric, from three two-dimensional drawings, a plan and two elevations (and sometimes, the process is reversed and the player has to create three two-dimensional drawings from the axonometric).
In this work Styrofoam Cup Sculpture,Tara Donovan makes a beautiful space out of an everyday object. She has included many of these seemingly banal objects in her previous works such as rolls of tape, pencils and plastic cups. Her artworks are known for suggesting the wonders of nature and creating a sense of the sublime. As Nicholas Baume, the Institute of Contemporary Art’s chief curator, describes her work, “Tara’s work isn’t ironic. It actually takes up the discourse of Minimalism. It’s about creating a system, using a structure, and repeating incremental units that can go from the finite to the seemingly infinite.” For more information on Donovan’s work, click here.
