My Favorite Project

d. Cube.

I told Harrison, "I want to make something huge." Moments later, with 12 planks of wood, two friends and I set out to make a giant 7’ x 7’ cube. A spur of the moment activity, play for play’s sake. It has now become an interactive, iterative, co creative icon that resides within the Loft.
