Great balance, colour and contrast.
But the concept... yeah, it's great, but i don't see how you related this piece to breaching societal norms. By just saying what it is doesn't do a great job of explaining the meaning.

Is the 7-coloured Rubik's Cube meant to represent society? Does the missing white-syringe have a place in the meaning? Are the syringes some icon of rebellion? Am I over-thinking all this? I just see an interesting contrast in the assemblage of items.

Unless! The abnormality and social commentary is crafted by the fact that you just stuck needles into a toy... and the individual viewer is 'society', and when they see that you've drugged up a cube, they're meant to go "what the hell" because you're breaking the unspoken societal norm of Rubik's Cube fair-treatment!

SUCCESS! I'VE SOLVED THE TRUE PUZZLE HERE!

all your syringes remind me of the syringes my dad used to use to fill his printer ink cartridges.

We each bring our own color to the cube. What would the world be like without our colors?!

Society trying to cure the Rubix out of its multi-colored confusion? very impressive... its a great, fresh idea (dare i say, "with a deep hidden meaning to it?" ack... i said it. lol)

Seriously, i'm glad you ranted against the whiners and that you had real talent to back your words up...

You deserve a million and one views... but then again, this ain't a doe-eyed, big-boobed, anime-ish cube. shame. lol :+fav: keep up the great work!

Either Glass Syringe or glass hypodermic. They are usually available.
