in computer graphics, a color gradient is the visual technique of gradually transitioning from one color hue to another. in nature we can see them daily with a sunset or a sunrise when light becomes darkness and vice versa. with this in mind, clemens habicht created the 1000 COLOURS jigsaw puzzle where each tile is an individual color and the task is to place each color exactly in relation to every other color. we haven’t tried them ourselves, but they don’t seem to be on the easy side.

the color gradient puzzle is a creation of german creative clemens habicht

 

 

‘the idea came from enjoying the subtle differences in the blue of a sky in a particularly brutal jigsaw puzzle, I found that without the presence of image detail to help locate a piece I was relying only on an intuitive sense of color, and this was much more satisfying to do than the areas with image details,’ comments clemens habicht. ‘what is strange is that unlike ordinary puzzles where you are in effect redrawing a specific picture from a reference you have a sense of where every piece belongs compared to every other piece. there is a real logic in the doing that is weirdly soothing, therapeutic, it must be the german coming out in me. as each piece clicks perfectly into place, just so, it’s a little win, like a little pat on the back.’
