Dream Big - Rubik Cube Martin Luther King Portrait
Designer Pete Fecteau, spent 40 hours configuring a monumental mosaic of Martin Luther King Jr. made entirely out of Rubik’s Cubes called Dream Big. Each cube was “reversed solved” or twisted so that one of the faces maps it’s nine stickers into the total image, that’s 38,178 stickers in total!
With a computer generated draft as his blueprint, Pete used 4,242 Rubik’s Cubes to construct the 18’ 6” x 9’ 8” piece that, once completed, weighed about half a ton.
Here’s an almost unfairly cool promo video for the Inkling, a new pen from Wacom that lets you draw on paper, then stores your drawings so you can pull them up on the computer later.
Cons: can’t erase as you draw; requires paper
Pros: sufficiently advanced technology; indistinguishable from magic
instead of using actual spray cans…some artist are just cleaning dirt off of certain areas to make their masterpieces. and they are calling it reverse graffiti. kind of brilliant.
Proof that art can be created anywhere.
