City of the World 2012

Puzzle Print #3: The City of the World 2012

Project SUMMARY

Generally speaking, a puzzle print is any print in which the block is sawed into pieces, each of which is carved and sometimes inked separately. The "puzzle" is then assembled at press and printed as a single image. A Collaborative-Puzzle-Print is a special kind of puzzle print whereby a humongous block or three are painstakingly sawed into many many many funny shaped pieces. Each of the pieces is then flown across the world landing squarely in the carving bench of brave printmakers everywhere. Each artist carves their little piece, sometimes unaware of the "big picture" but always under a theme. The instigato--er, coordinator I meant, receives back the tiny blocks and assembles them one by one until all come home. The coordinator then assembles and prints the entire puzzle composed of wonderfully carved images. Each printmaker then receives a rather large print of the entire project.

THEME

THE THEME for this project is "City of the World", as tightly or loosely interpreted as each participant wishes. The overall design will interpret the theme literally, that is, the pieces will be part or entire cars, trucks, apartment windows, houses, clouds, planes, park benches, trees, shops, pieces of street or sidewalk, buses, and a very long etcetera. The piece each participant receives may or may not be recognizable and the shape may or may not influence the individual's design. The design may be how an individual sees themselves "in their corner of the world"; how they perceive themselves within the world or the world of printmaking; a representation of their actual place in their city or town; more generally "home"; their view of their city or town, again, etcetera. Anything goes in the City of the World. The only requirements are that the piece be carved "side up" as indicated by the arrow on the back of the piece and that it follow the general theme: City of the World.
