"A Puzzling Display" ( is a new artist-created online arts and culture game, accompanied by an exhibition of related artworks at the New Art Center (NYC) May 1-19, 2012.

Inspired by the annual "puzzle hunts" hosted by institutions such as MIT and Microsoft, Silicon Valley digital artist Tim Roseborough has created "A Puzzling Display": an Internet-based set of intelligent and challenging interactive puzzles covering topics such as art history, music, film and culture.

Registered participants compete and test their knowledge of art and culture, and high scorers will win original prints signed by Roseborough.

The "A Puzzling Display" web site will be accompanied by an exhibition of limited edition prints that translate the language of each online puzzle into Roseborough's signature "Englyph" writing system, which creates innovative hieroglyphic-like images from everyday language.

In the 21st century, gaming and game-related paradigms are steadily integrating themselves into contemporary culture. "A Puzzling Display," continues Roseborough's exploration of the techniques and theories of gaming and play in the context of contemporary art.

With an aim of blurring the distinction between fine art and diversion, Roseborough's virtual artwork incorporates interactivity, video, sound art, and computer animation to take a fresh look at arts and culture.

Tim Roseborough is a digital artist and musician. His artwork and exhibitions have been featured in numerous publications, including Art In America, ARTNews, San Francisco Chronicle, SF Arts Monthly, SF Examiner, and the San Francisco Bay Guardian. Roseborough has performed and exhibited his artwork nationally, including the 2010 ZERO1 Biennial, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Root Division, Artexpo New York, The Garage San Francisco, ARTWork SF, and the Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco.
