I decided to take the previous idea of a 3D cube solving as a 2D net and just simply make a video that has a repeating pattern.
This work shows each of the sides set out as a sequence, showing a diagonal pattern.
I don’t think it works as well as my original idea, diverting away from the whole idea of my work, but I still enjoy watching this outcome.
This is a digital drawing of a cube solve. I assigned each line with a colour that represents it’s respective side, then solved a cube, recorded each move I made and recreated it in 2D
I was considering deviating away from the use of a rubik’s cube in my work. As I enjoyed creating the idea behind my sculpture, my next work will most likely involve found objects that contain repeating patterns which demonstrate the same idea as my current work.
This is another example showing the solving of a Rubik’s cube as a 2D net, still demonstrating the movement and flow of the solve while not in it’s usual 3D structure.

I used piano keys to construct a cuboid structure which has an interesting repetition of lines, which has parallels with the repetition of algorithms used to solve a cube.
Another experiment using the light cube. It can scramble and solve itself, but using lights. I thought this showed the idea of the resetting without the use of mechanisms.
I used a light touch cube to demonstrate the reset of the cube. It can scramble and solve itself, but using lights. I thought this showed the idea of the resetting without the use of mechanisms.
