Hijacking The Rubiks Cube
A French artist has added a subtle message of ecological conservation to the famed Rubik's Cube.
French artist Claire Fontaine has designed Cube Fontaine, a solid cube whose sides depict the surface of the sea, giving a subtle message of ecological conservation.
The designer store, Colette describes Cube Fontaine in its catalog.
The Cube Fontaine by artist Claire Fontaine is a hijacking of the famous Rubiks cube. The 6 sides of color are replaced by views of the surface of the sea. Manipulating it gives unique and contradictory images. This poetic object mixes the solid of the cube and the liquid of water while discreetly evoking ecological disasters that surround us.
The cube is available for $42 in the store.
