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.

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!
