Either you can solve a Rubik’s Cube or you can’t.
If you can’t then that’s pretty normal.
If you can then you’ve probably never seen a pair of girl’s panties in real life unless they were hanging on a store rack.
Fact is, solving a Rubik’s Cube is not difficult. It merely requires practice. Each pattern dictates a certain number of moves and manipulations in order to bring about a desired result.
With careful study and repetition you could be one of those guys that can solve any Rubik’s cube in under five minutes. Post a youtube video about solving it in under five minutes. Then, after one year, you’ll have one hundred whole views.
You could have spent that time getting achievements on your X-Box 360, but each dork unto his own.
Hungarian sculptor and professor of Architecture Erno Rubik created the Rubik’s Cube, originally called the ‘Magic Cube,’ in 1974. There were actually two previous incarnations of the Rubik’s Cube that received patents, but never took off in popularity nearly as well.
But in all the years of existence for the Rubik’s Cube I’ll bet Mr. Rubik never thought to use the toy as art.
The Rubik’s Cube is, at its essence, a puzzle toy. Makes sense then to make artistic renderings from it.
Wanna make videogame characters like Pacman Ghosts and ‘Space Invaders?’ Sure. A nuclear blast? Of course. The ‘Mona Lisa?’ Absolutely. A vagina? Now you’re talkin’!
The artist’s mind is where common sense goes to die. An artist only cares about what the artist’s brain piece can conceive. And in all the potential designs to be made from a Rubik’s Cub, one stands out.
A bigass mural of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The mural of Dr. King is an impressive work to be sure. It was created by artist Pete Fecteau who named it ‘Dream Big.’ Using 4,242 Rubik’s Cubes and a year of planning and execution he created the mural to be, at inception, the biggest Rubik’s Cube mural in the world and a creative way to demonstrate the use art in traditional learning disciplines.
I told you that the artist’s mind is where common sense goes to die.
If you’re gonna do a mural of someone though, you could pick worse subjects. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a civil rights advocate who led the charge for equal rights. His charge was primarily on behalf of the American Negro, but his spirit was also adopted by women’s and LGBT groups as well.
Fact is, everyone deserves to be treated equally. Hard to say considering the existence of the ‘douchebag.’ Every ‘douchebag’ is a ridiculous collection of nonsense from his co-opted rapper speech, rapper clothing, and rapper mannerisms to his near mindless pursuit of punanny.
But everyone, despite their personal drawbacks and societal ills, deserves an attempt at inclusion. In spite of the ‘douchbag”s unwillingness to understand that his very being is an affront to good taste, we have no right to poo in his breakfast cereal.
And if it takes us a Rubik’s Cube-made mural of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to understand that, then so be it.
