Urs Fischer: CHAOS Jigsaw Puzzle
This colorful two-thousand-piece jigsaw puzzle is based on a still from Urs Fischer’s CHAOS #501 (2019–22), the culmination of a multiyear series of digital sculptures. In the work, all one thousand digital objects from the CHAOS series move independently of each other through a defined space. Each element in the series is based on an everyday object that has undergone a metamorphosis from physical to digital existence through a variety of scanning processes. The details and imperfections found in the physical world are intentionally preserved. The inaugural visualization of CHAOS #501—shown on a 14-by-30-foot 8K wall display—was presented in the exhibition Urs Fischer: Denominator at Gagosian, 555 West 24th Street, New York, in 2022.
