Solve live puzzles to receive clues to Sienna's Numberism puzzle drawing of Sherlock Holmes, "The Game is Afoot"
Labyrinth Escape Games is proud to feature its first Artist in Residence, Sienna Morris; a local Portland artist who creates scientific artwork using numbers and equations to illustrate her subjects. This partnership culminates in a first of its kind, interactive puzzle-themed art exhibit on September 15th , 2016, featuring Sienna's puzzle drawing “The Game is Afoot”.
"A Study in Numbers"; is an interactive art show with a series of live puzzles designed by the team of master puzzle crafters at Labyrinth Escape Games. Those who can solve these puzzles will receive clues to assist them in solving Sienna's puzzle-based numberism drawing of Sherlock Holmes, “The Game is Afoot”. This illustration was drawn entirely with numbers and letters by hand, which are themselves puzzles, riddles, ciphers and codes inspired by the world of Sherlock Holmes. The work comes with a box of tools, including a wax sealed envelope, a hardback edition of ‘The Original Illustrated Sherlock Holmes’ and a magnifying glass. Players utilize Sherlockian methods to deduce the answers, with a special prize awarded to the first three players to solve the final problem.
After nearly two years since its release, “The Game is Afoot” has yet to be solved. Those who can solve the puzzles created for this exclusive event will receive up to 4 clues, giving them an advantage in being the first solver.
Hosted at Labyrinth Escape Games, 816 NW Hoyt St., in Portland’s historic Pearl district, attendees can explore Labyrinth's immersive escape rooms while playing puzzles and viewing a collection of artwork by Sienna. The last 10 fully playable editions of “The Game is Afoot” will be available for purchase at the show, as well as a collection of partially playable prints.
Labyrinth has had a desire since its inception to become involved in the Portland community by partnering with and showcasing the works of local artists and artisans. Due to the overwhelming positive response from fans and players of Labyrinth, these partnerships are finally possible. Labyrinth’s CEO, Andrew Lind, explained, “We couldn't have picked a better artist to feature, not only are her pieces mesmerizing, but she has been amazing to work with. This is another step in Labyrinth becoming more a part of the Portland community and fulfilling our mission of bringing people together through exciting experiences.”
