Secret heartbreak 86
Acrylic and silkscreen ink on wooden box
hinged wooden box
Acrylic and silkscreen ink containing 24 six-sided
wooden cubes (3.8 × 3.8 cm)

28 × 20 × 2 cm - 11 × 7.8 × 0.7 in

In 2009 - 2010, Faile continued to apply two-dimensional imagery to three-dimensional form, further developing the sense of interactivity and play in their work. These included digital games and a pop-up arcade, but the real breakthrough was a series of wooden puzzle boxes, painted on the outside and on a grid of small cubes on the
inside. These "blocks" allowed FAILE to work on six surfaces and, more importantly, invited turning over and recombining in abstract compositions. This manual "remixing" in the puzzle boxes allowed FAILE to approach painting and his own image archive with a new perspective in the years that followed.
