‘Infinite Jest’ Adapted in Lego

infinitejestKevin Griffith, an English professor in Ohio has teamed up with his 11 year old son to create a Lego adaptation of David Foster Wallace’s novel Infinite Jest.

Brick Jest” recreates 100 scenes from the tome. The two have documented the project with photography with text captions.

The pair were inspired to create Brick Jest after reading Brendan Powell Smith‘s The Brick Bible, a series of books that teach Bible stories to kids with Lego. Check it out:  ”Wallace’s novel is probably the only contemporary text to offer a similar challenge to artists working in the medium of Lego.  The artist in this case was Griffith’s eleven-year-old son, Sebastian, who created all the scenes based on his father’s descriptions of the relevant pages.”
