I Have a (Puzzling) Dream

Come across this whilst browsing the net and thought you guys might like.

MAKE Sales Manager Brigitte Kunde shared this amazing build with us, spotted online by a friend of hers. Pete Fecteau used over 4,000 Rubik’s Cubes to create this 18′ 6″ x 9′ 8″ mosaic of Dr. Martin Luther King. Apparently Rubik’s-based artwork is a “thing.” There’s Rubik’s Einstein, Lincoln, Sitting Bull, Kathy Lee and Hoda(?). There’s even a name for the genre: Rubikcubism.




Unbelievable results! Its almost like Andy Warhol pop art.
I suck at Rubiks cubes .. and art

Beautiful! I cannot imagine the patience it took to mess with all those cubes to get them right to make the image, let alone the building of the mosaic itself.

I've been an artist since I was around 10, and have since evolved through canvas and oils, pen and ink, charcoal, and now digital. After seeing this creativity, I put down my Wacom artpad and I'm going back to photography. Thanks for sharing

It looks amazing but couldn't you just reduce the resolution of an image on a computer and the amount of colors displayed until you get the look you want, and then just look at the pixels zoomed in to know which color goes where?

That's what I would do.

Of course the whole messing around with 4,000 rubix cubes part is no walk in the park. That must have taken forever!

Beautiful.

i think he cheated.

he has a laptop in front of him and probably used some program to divide a picture of martin luther king into grids out lining what color should be where and where each cube should be.

it's a giant paint by numbers using rubik's cube.

but it still looks impressive.

Yes I thought that - the process you proposed
Also the artist has to come up with the right combination of colours on the individual cube

God I could never do those damn cubes - I gave up after ten minutes

Nerd Art has grown wings it seems

Love all art

I wonder what the back side of the finished product looks like.
