Cube Selector

Following are some examples of a conceptual art piece that I did in the first half of 2020. My collaborators were other friends who would give me instructions (an inverse Sol Lewit) via  web form. each participant was emailed an image of the configuration of cubes I made based on their instructions.

9 cubes of all types with David on 05/20/20

15 yellow cubes with Michael on 5/21/20

6 varied red cubes with Jessica on 5/21/20

9 red cubes with Barbara Anne on 5/21/20

At this point in the project I realized a few modifications that needed to be made to the form, and that sometimes users could input values that on net I couldn’t deliver (in the example immediately above, I did not have any large cubes that were totally red, and was 1 cube shy of being able to “deliver” a composition using 10 cubes with some surfaces painted red).

13 red, brown and white cubes with Tim on 5/24/20

15 red, white, tan and brown cubes with Adriana on 5/27/20
