De Selby's Perpetual Jig-Saw-Jig-Saw

to help [wagster] and [wjt] with their reality dilemmas

Brought to you by the venerable De Selby, of Third Policeman fame, Jig-Saw-Jig- Saw is a jig-saw puzzle which is created by photographing a completed jig-saw, whose subject matter is in turn a person working on a jig-saw puzzle, with numerous pieces scattered about.

To add to the difficulty and confusion, the pieces and cut patterns of Jig-Saw-Jig- Saw, are slightly different to those of its origins, which it is attempting to imitate.

When the entire Jig-saw-jig-saw is half completed, the solver takes a high resolution photograph, which is sent into the manufacturer as part of a competition. One of these is chosen to create the next generation of puzzles.

see links to [wjt] and De-Selby for those who don't know.

Similar recursiveness, but with cats instead of jigsaws. [wagster, Jan 25 2009]


       A devillish fellow, that De Selby, and constructor of the most fiendish jigsaws in Dalkey. I'm sure my poor noggin will never be the same.

       We used to have some friends who loved Jigsaws, so what we did was buy about 6 boxes of about 10000 piece jigsaws and mix all of the pieces together in a big plastic bag. We then mailed this bag to them anonymously with no photographs attached. I don't know if they like jigsaw puzzles anymore.

       Ah reality, the only place where there are no leftover and unplaced pieces .
