Reproduction and digital file retouching for 8 metre wide Jigsaw Puzzle. Commissioned by Heston Blumenthal.

The Challenge

Heston's new Fat Duck restaurant in Melbourne wanted to install an 8m x 2m jigsaw puzzle. The artwork would be supplied as 2 large canvases as well as a number of smaller pieces. All the elements would be photographed in our studio and composited into a single file ready for printing and cutting in 19500 pieces.

Colour accuracy on a massive scale - 8 metre wide!

The project required critical colour management from start to finish. Also due to the large format nature of the final output, we developed a range of strict processes to maintain maximum resolution so that the file piece would be consistent and ensure it looked as close to the original artwork as possible.

Digital compositing a 15 gigabyte file

The was one of the largest compositing projects we had worked on. The finished size had to be 8m wide by 2m high at 100%. The detail needed to be pin sharp. In order to achieve this, we developed a process right from the start to maintain colour accuracy and resolution.
