Sweet Thursday

Kevin Campbell's avatar Kevin Campbell

My proposal for Artprize, titled Sweet Thursday is an addition to a larger work of art that I've been creating for over 20 years called Puzzle Project.Puzzle Project is a work of art that can be added onto- can 'grow' indefinitely. Thisis accomplished by joining sheets of plywood together edge to edge creating a theoretically endless surface. As the work grows pieces and groups of pieces are separated and treated as individual works of art. Currently completed there are 29 sheets of plywood (4'x8') cut into 1387 pieces, making up 185 groups. Sweet Thursday now adds 6 new sheets of plywood cut into 812 pieces making 19 groups, and creating an assemblage 8' tall and 24' wide. The installation will also include a short video describing the Puzzle Project and showing the creation and installation of Sweet Thursday. In addition there will be a print of the composite image showing all the Puzzle Project currently produced.
