New York toy sculptor and designer Jason Freeny was awarded Clutter Magazine’s Break Through Artist of the Year in 2 011 for his tireless collection of pop-culture toys. In 2012\, Jason introd uced the Brain Cube\, a 3-dimensional puzzle game in the Rubik’s-style puzz le cube. Brain Cube is played by twisting the fleshy colored\, squishy feel ing cube around and around until you line up the folds of the brain on all six sides. Inventive\, creepy cool. Jason Freeny is a deep thinker and reim agines everything from mundane household items to iconic toys. Jason descri bes\, “I’m driven by the discovery of the interesting and grotesque skeleta l systems that these characters produce. I work in what I consider a “rever se forensics.” I take cues from the exterior forms of the characters that d ictates what the inner anatomy would look like. In a way\, I’m liberating w hats already inside. I like the anatomy to have a similar “toy like” feel a s the exterior\, colored in the same cartoonish fashion as the plastic toy. ”
