Clemens Habicht's  5000 COLOURS is a CMYK colour gamut jigsaw puzzle of 5000 pieces. Each tile is an individual colour and the task is to place each colour exactly in relation to every other colour. 

"This one is for all those who wrote and said that 1000 COLOURS wasn't a challenge. Multiplying the number of pieces by a magnitude of five makes the difference in hue between neighbouring tiles barely perceptible. "         

With adjacent tiles almost identical in colour this puzzle is designed with an original random ribbon pattern so that each piece is a distinctly different shape and can fit clearly in only one way.

Co-produced with Lamington Drive Editions, 1000 COLOURS follows on from solo exhibitions at Lamington Drive; 100 KITES and 100 FACES.

Assembled Dimensions : 1 x 1.3m

1000 Colours – The original.

Clemens Habicht's  1000 COLOURS is a CMYK colour gamut jigsaw puzzle of 1000 pieces. Each tile is an individual colour and the task is to place each colour exactly in relation to every other colour. 

"The idea came from enjoying the subtle differences in the blue of a sky in a particularly brutal jigsaw puzzle, I found that without the presence of image detail to help locate a piece I was relying only on an intuitive sense of colour, and this was much more satisfying to do than the areas with image details.
 
What is strange is that unlike ordinary puzzles where you are in effect redrawing a specific picture from a reference you have a sense of where every piece belongs compared to every other piece. There is a real logic in the doing that is weirdly soothing, therapeutic, it must be the German coming out in me. As each piece clicks perfectly into place, just so, it's a little win, like a little pat on the back."

100 Colours - For people with smaller hands.

Clemens Habicht's  100 COLOURS is a CMYK jigsaw puzzle of 100 pieces, each tile is an individual colour and the task is to place each colour exactly in relation to every other colour.

Following on in spirit and scale from 1000 COLOURS, fewer pieces means larger tiles for smaller hands. With larger jumps between neighbouring colour values 100 COLOURS is less daunting but similarly challenging as its older brother and suitable for all ages from 3 up.

"Watching friends with families playing with 1000 COLOURS it surprised me that often the youngest children were better at intuitively knowing colour sequences and relationships than their parents, but to them the 1000 pieces felt as impossible as a 1000 page book, hence this gentler version."
