A Box of Wonderful

Photo Cube

I love these Photo Cubes. They are very bossy. “Pull, pull, pull” they read on almost every panel. Pull what? I can’t figure out what needs pulling (there’s a joke in there somewhere). These are the original photos included with the photo cubes. I don’t have the following people in my family: the girl with the devil doll collection, the woman mesmerized by the ship model, the woman who has never seen a piano jewelry box, or the odd trio (clearly an alternative arrangement) with matching knit-wear.

It’s a smart idea, though. I’ve often come back to the idea of an image cube when thinking about a 3-dimensional promotion. Then I look in my plastic box of favorite things, and say, “Oh, they already exist.” I also love Isamu Noguchi’s Red Cube sculpture from 1968 at 140 Broadway in New York. I wonder, would it have been better as a giant photo cube with the mesmerized woman and ship model?

    What are you smoking? You equate those cheap plastic boxes to the Noguchi sculpture?

    You crazy!

    Yes, it would be much nicer with photos. You know it.
