  • Really like the simplicity and solidity of these sculptures. The perfectionism is a delight, when it comes to the organisation and ordering of the pieces. I like the first sculpture the best because it’s like a puzzle and I really want to take it apart then put it back together. Perhaps some of these could be made into interactive sculptures, you could take most of these concepts and turn them into puzzles and games, placing pieces back into order. You could make some of the blocks different heights to make a certain pattern so that each block only has one space it could sit in etc.

    • my aunt and uncle had several wood block puzzles like this at their home and i would sit around for hours trying to solve them!

  • The first one reminds me of lincoln logs for some reason. These are really meditative.

    Do people on here really not know Carl Andre?

    • luther

      my thoughts exactly

    • Vanessa

      Same here. I guess people think he’s a newcomer, but at least they’re learning now!

  • NAMBO

    The 3rd one reminds me of the statues from the old chinese empire. It especially reminded me of that because of the sorrounding to them. It definitely makes me want to create more pattern artwork!

  • Did Carl Andre submit these to you [Jeff]?? Not to undermine Booooom, but that’s amazing!
