I’ve been recently intrigued by the idea of getting the Matter subscribers to do a single jigsaw puzzle. I like the idea of everyone (notice how I avoided the over-used word community) collectively create something and I’m particularly fascinated by the things inside Matter moving from the private experience into a more public one.
The easy and more obvious way to do this would to do it online, but web puzzles seem to be a bit twee and, frankly, a little unrewarding. But, maybe that’s just the ones I’ve seen. More dramatic and exciting is the prospect of getting all the Matter subscribers to ‘do’ the puzzle in real life. Obviously, this wouldn’t be easy, not least of the challenges would be getting people to physically do the puzzle and how could we avoid the inevitable frustration if one person failed to turn up with their piece?
Leave aside the politics, the Freedom Not Fear campaign created this collage of our leader from CCTV images, which goes some way to illustrating how this might work.
Could we do the same but for purely entertaining reasons?
