Featuring a Hubble telescope photo of the Westerlund 2 star cluster, this Infinite Galaxy Jigsaw Puzzle has no fixed shape, starting point or edges—the pieces are double-sided and can be assembled in thousands of different ways. The 236 laser-cut maple plywood pieces include three “whimsy” pieces: an astronaut, a space shuttle and the international space station. To further challenge puzzle aficionados, the puzzle maps to an impossible 3D shape that is like a Mobius strip in that the inside and outside are mathematically identical. Practically, this means that pieces from one side can attach to the other, but only once they have been flipped over—in other words, the puzzle is an extremely difficult and unique challenge. Ages 13+.
The Infinite Galaxy Jigsaw Puzzle was created in the Catskills by the generative design studio Nervous System, who have work in MoMA’s collection, and measures variably, with 7l x 11"w in its smallest configuration.
