  • lexi

    can you post the answer here? i’m really curious what the rest is, i’m was so close but i didn’t figure it out still.

  • This is awesome, I love stuff like this! After work I’ma have to take a crack at this!

  • Neat puzzle, figured it out in about 15 minutes except for the solution! I was using the decoded words instead of the actual words (I don’t think that will give anything away). Thanks for the brain challenge on this rainy day.

  • a.e.

    That seem to me to be rediculously dificult.
    Good thing I cheated. :)

  • Stan

    Nice, saw this puzzle before going out this morning, had a go when I got back. Had the same problem as Karen but figured it out eventually :)

  • I did it without cheating!
    Shame I have no proof.

  • steve

    i started translating into ms word so i could color code my translations, based on which colors i thought i figured out the rules for. i dont think karens and stans comments ruined anything but do make me think im just going off in the wrong direction now, lol.

    • Stan

      Steve: just carry on translating until you get all the words and it’ll make sense!

      • steve

        ah yep, it did :) just had me overthinking it for a moment was all.

  • MR.

    i feel so retarded. i looked at it for 5 minutes and still cant get anywhere with it.

  • a little hint to get your started:

    whirred = word

Photographer Daniel Ranalli Spends Two Decades Capturing Snail Trails

“Spiral #9” (1996)

 

Massachusetts-based photographer Daniel Ranalli has spent more than 20 years on his “Snail Drawings,” a series which consists of one image of neatly configured snails and a second image of the unique patterns made when the snails were left to their own devices.

While a simple enough concept, Ranalli sees the project as a reflection of the inherent randomness of life and our inability to control the results or elements of a situation no matter how hard we might try! See more of Ranalli’s work below or on display at Classic Photographs Los Angeles January 21-22.
