The Cube by elgatonegro13 The Cube by elgatonegro13
An art piece I just finished based on the ancient Sufi self awareness game "The Cube". Took me 2 hours to finish. Used stock and made the actual cube myself.

You want to play??

The Desert

Imagine a desert landscape.

It is utterly simple.

A horizon line.

Sand. Sky.

The Cube

In this desert landscape, there is a cube.

See it. Describe it.

What size is it?
Where is it?
What is it made of?
(There are no rules, no right or wrong answers. Describe the cube you see.)

The Ladder


In this landscape, as well as the cube, there is a also a ladder.

Describe it; its size, position, what its made of.

The Horse

In this desert there is also a horse.

Describe it.
What kind of horse is it?
What size? What color?
Where is it relative to the cube and ladder?
What is it doing?

The Storm


Somewhere in this landscape is a storm.

Describe it.

Where is it?
What kind of storm is it?
How does it affect-or not affect-
the cube, the ladder, and the horse?

The Flowers

Finally, in this desert are flowers.

Describe them.

How many are there?
What kind? What color?
Where are they in relation to the cube, the ladder, the horse, the storm?

What to know what each one of them means? Don't cheat by using Google. You will lose the value of imagining it. Post your descriptions and I will pm you explaining what each one of them means.

hhmmm... a 3x3 foot black cube, shiny, like obsidian, just sitting, half buried in the sand. The ladder is metal, shiny, with blue/yellow steps. Made for construction (I'm imagining my dad's old one). The horse is based off of this popular picture: [link] JUST like that, maybe more black than brown. Doing the same thing it is in the pic. the storm is just a couple grayclouds overhead, maybe bringing a little rain, but everything is dry BUT the horse. the horse is soaked-ish. The flowers are light pink/white, like small dasies or forget-me-nots. Healthy, slightly wet from the rain, but overall fine, sitting in a patch of green leave and grass.

What the heck does that mean? 0.o
