Artist Makes Puzzles, Art

DENVER (CBS4) – The pieces twist, the pattern moves.

“It’s actually very hard, like a Rubik’s Cube,” said designer, Kagen Sound.

When the pattern is completely aligned, the box will open. It’s called the Disc Box II. It’s designed and handmade by Sound.

“I, kind of, just love puzzles. I’ve always loved solving and playing with puzzles and later building them,” Sound told CBS4.

In his woodworking studio in the RiNo Art District, Sound works on several projects at a time, making and assembling them by hand.

“I’m never quite, totally certain what it’s going to turn out like. I do my best to predict that, but just like any sculpture or painting they take on a life of their own,” Sound explained.

Sound works in wood, and makes puzzles of all shapes and sizes. He told CBS4 that he recently finished a puzzle room.

“There’s a fun kind of meshing of intellect and emotion in the kind of thing I do, and I like being able to express that,” Sound said.

On Friday, Nov. 6, Sound will open his studio for First Friday. It’s an opportunity for art lovers to take a peak behind the puzzle. Sound hopes that his work will inspire.

“When I was young, before I did this, I saw puzzle boxes that inspired me,” he added.
