"These puzzles are beautiful, they are the perfect way to disconnect and spend time with your family. I can also think of no better gift to give your loved ones!" - Cleo Wade

"it’s extra special to get to put someone’s work together piece by piece. And it’s hard! So good for the brain to really investigate all the nuances in color and little hints of how the image is built up. I don’t think I’ve had such an intimate experience with a photograph, in a physical sense, literally assembling it.And it’s funny and new, at the same time as I used to run a small photography publication when I lived in London, focusing mainly on photography practices exploring various new physicalities in the medium. But this is different!" - Elevine

“try a puzzle today, it’s good for your brain”.

“we had some friends over and everyone was getting so obsessed with finding the next piece. it was beautiful.“

“it was really fun and helped take our mind off of everything surrounding us. there were 3 of us doing it, and it took about 5 hours, but we didn’t even realize how fast time was flying. it allowed us to truly disconnect from it all. it was honestly one of the best moments i had during the isolation because it made me feel like in he midst of everything in the world having to pause - i actually have something that i can complete from start to finish.” - Cam

“i’m going to hold onto this for the rest of my life and give it to my kids when they’re older.”

“the set up is so clever”

“i haven’t done a puzzle in years”

“didn’t even notice my phone died”

“its refreshing to see color in puzzle format”

“where did the time go?”

“your puzzle actually really motivated me to do other puzzles. i have done so many since completing yours. during this quarantine time, i’ve completed two 1000 pieces and one 550 and currently working on a 750 piece. i’m going to frame all of them. i know i was still teaching during the process of completing your puzzle. i would do about an hour or so of putting it together after i got back from work, had dinner and rested up. it was sooo relaxing and i would listen to music and be very deep in thought when doing the puzzle!” - jocelyn

“I like the pieces; they aren’t normal puzzle pieces… they make you think”

“puzzles always bring back good family memories.”

"working on a puzzle from cary is a really neat experience. it’s therapeutic because it takes your mind off things and forces you to concentrate. i love seeing all the details of his photograph close up. it gives a much greater appreciation for the different textures and gradients of light. i am currently working on a 1,000 piece one and it can be frustrating when you get overwhelmed by all the pieces, but once you get going it’s actually addicting! it’s a great self-esteem booster to watch everything come together. especially during this time of quarantine, it’s so great to have something to quiet my mind, disconnect and feel like i’m accomplishing something!" - victoria

“i had no idea we would get as far as we did, addicting. my son is totally addicted, i have to get another one. he’s going to be my chair sculpting partner btw.”

“let the world/ your thoughts fall away for a little  
feel more present with my self“  

"when i got the puzzle, the first thing i did was get a cup of tea because i knew i’d be there for a while. on my first day, i just gathered all of the edge pieces and pieces with similar colors. having the puzzle has really been a silver lining to the quarantine because there’s a feeling of productivity when you can see the puzzle come together little by little. you get to spend enough time with the gritty gravel and the chair in the sun that we can almost hear the sound of cars going by and the wind rushing through the legs of the chair. it really was an invitation to disconnect and explore your imagination. you get lost in the pieces, it’s a great way to escape your thoughts!" - nick

“Puzzles have always intimidated me, but to work on one with such a beautiful image made me very invested. I started with the intention to frame the puzzle and hang on my wall so it didn’t feel like I was doing a puzzle but more that I was exploring every inch of someone’s art. I started with my cousin and I couldn’t stop until I finished completely. No phone, no distractions. It was very meditative ♥️“
