CubeWorks is a multi-artist collaboration best known for their ingenious use of that classic puzzle block, the Rubik’s Cube. The cube, which was invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ernő Rubik, is widely considered to be the world’s best selling toy. CubeWorks plays upon the iconic nature of the cube by constructing these large-scale artworks of, well, some of the most iconic images in popular culture. The largest image in their repertoire is Michaelangelo’s “The Hand of God” which measures 14’ 7" ft tall by 28’ 10" wide and is comprised of 12,090 Rubik’s cubes. The studio (located in Toronto) plans on re-creating the entire ceiling of the Sistine Chapel by utilizing a whopping 250,000 Rubik’s Cubes. See their full collection here.
I’m not sure if you can call this project fun but it is definitely creative. These pieces of art were created by Cube works, they change Rubik’s cubes in to cutting edge pieces of art. I would love to attempt to create something that even closely resembled a piece like theirs but I don’t know how to do a Rubik’s cube, so I’m going to draw a line though this idea.
