A short film (and publication) exploring how three Italians perceive order and chaos. The ‘unorderable’ puzzle was designed to be seemingly simple, yet impossible to satisfyingly complete.

At first the participants all attempted to fill the cutouts so that no pieces remained. When they were asked to do it again differently they paid less attention to the cutouts, instead experimenting with how the pieces could work together. They also spoke about the most ordered and chaotic parts of their life, and which of the two extremes they preferred.
