If you're in the Bay Area, come down to the final stop on the West Coast leg of the CRACK THE CUBE TOUR. I'll be at this charming independent bookstore in the Ferry Building. No guarantee if that dude with the parrot and old fashioned sailor uniform will be there, but I'll have plenty of Rubik's Cubes and books!
This event, titled THE ART AND SCIENCE OF RUBIK'S CUBE, will delve into the artistic lineage of Rubik's Cube, which goes all the way back to Michaelangelo. I'll be discussing the way Rubik's Cube fits into the history of modern art and design, and describing some of the ways it's inspired artists to create entirely new genres, blending the use of mosaic and digital art into what Invader, the French street artist, likes to call "Rubikcubisme."
