Thinking Out-Of-The-Box, 2017
Dog tether, 9 pegs, 2 nails
300 x 240 x 10 cm
The goal in the ‘9 dots puzzle’ is to connect nine dots using four lines without lifting the pencil from the paper. The solution requires going outside of the imaginary square defined by the dots. This puzzle, also known as “Thinking Out-Of-The-Box”, is often used as an example of creative thinking when teaching management classes. Here, it is recreated using a dog tether with mismatched pegs as dots to evoke various domestic settings.
