Q U B E (QR-Code Rubik’s Cube plus Content)
Q U B E is a handmade Rubik’s Cube with QR-Codes – a physical object that links to pages containing digital content: videos, audio files (music!), images and text. The idea here was to reintroduce some form of physical, human, ‘hands-on’ engagement with post-physical content, rather than pander to the ubiquity of one-finger DOWNLOAD culture.
We wanted to create a bridge between the Analogue and the Digital, between Now and Then; make an artefact that existed on both sides of The Screen. We live in the era of The New Aesthetic, the Epoch of Digital Extrusion where Binary Object-Forms and Pixels are steppin’ out from under their flatscreens, growing legs and crawling up the beach into the Two Thousand and Tens. De-Digitisation. S’evolution, innit. Darwin in reverse.
So, this is us – Hacker Farm – joining in the fun. We hope you will too. Shhhh! Don’t tell anyone except your friends or everyone’ll want one. Limit-ed.
Like, Rubidecimal, man.
