rubik’s cube king
this is an amazing art installation – portrait of dr. martin luther king made entirely out of rubik’s cubes. to have mapped this out as pixels at this scale is a large feet but to have done it by rotating the actual cubes into place is something entirely amazing and a bit insane…
from the artist’s website:
“Dream Big” was a year-long project in which Pete created a mosaic of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. using 4,242 Rubik’s Cubes. For a short time it was the world’s largest Rubik’s Cube mosaic. He created it with the help of YouCanDoTheRubiksCube, First Park Congregational Church, The Student Advancement Foundation and Cooley Law School. It taught the audience about creatively using art in traditional learning disciplines like math and history, diversity, social justice and learning disabilities.
