"A card table in the library stands ready
To receive the puzzle which keeps never coming."
This work has introspective endeavors as its subject, taking James Merrill's poem "Lost in Translation" as its point of departure. Merrill's poem concerns his search for a translation of Paul Valery's poem "The Palm", leading him to remember his boyhood search for a missing puzzle piece.
The artist will show three large puzzles and a press-button jukebox.
