Pete Fecteau Mosaic Art made of 4,242 Rubik’s Cubes!

Mosaic Art at its best by Pete Fecteau!

Have you ever tried to solve a Rubrik’s cube? Quite difficult uhm? Well, there is actually someone who did something quite extraordinary with it. Pete Fecteau, an interactive designer in Michigan (check his portfolio), created a mosaic of 4,242 officially licensed Rubik’s Cubes and he named it “Dream Big”. The mosaic is 5.8m x 2.6m x 5.7cm but the most interesting thing is that each cube has been reversed solved or twisted so that one of the faces maps it’s nine stickers into the total image. Fecteau rented the cubes through the “You Can Do The Cube” organization, displayed the mosaic during the 2010 ArtPrize competition in Grand Rapids, Michigan from September 22nd to October 10th, and then disassembled the whole thing in late November and shipped the cubes back….So unfortunately you cannot behold this incredible art piece anymore…However, you can have a look at the pictures below and if you are still curios read more about it on Pete Fecteau’s blog!
