Tim Roseborough, a 2011 grant recipient of The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Arts will debut his exhibit, "A Puzzling Display" in Manhattan, NYC at the New Art Center on May 1st, 2012.

"A Puzzling Display" is based on his online contemporary art history and culture game where participants can test their knowledge.The accompanying online game begins at 8am EDT on May 1, 2012 and ends at 11:59pm EDT on May 20th, 2012.The first five perfect scores or the highest five scores at the end of the competition will receive 8" x 10" prints from the exhibition signed by the artist. Valued at 1,000 U.S.D. per piece.

Roseborough's virtual artwork incorporates many different interactive mediums and animation which creates a very unique perspective of art and culture.

The exhibit features limited edition prints that translate each online puzzle into a writing system reminiscent of Hieroglyphs. Roseborough aptly named them, "Englyphs"

Although it does leave the question of whether the interactivity is an attribute of modern art or a distraction from artistic intent?

My answer to that is that I'm not sure, what are some of your thoughts?
