For most of us, Alderaan is just that place that is so tragically destroyed in the first Star Wars movie–you know, the one that inspires ol’ Ben Kenobi to start talking about those millions of voices what were suddenly silenced. But thanks to BioWare and their Star Wars: The Old Republic, we’re getting a new look at the doomed planet.
Now it’s a little sadder, actually, getting a glimpse of what was. What will it be like to explore the surface of a planet you know will eventually poof in a spectacular display of cruelty? Guess we won’t be getting too attached to anything.
I’m thinking that’s going to be a little difficult, though. At least I’ll be waiting a while for the impending sadness; BioWare’s MMO effort isn’t scheduled for release any time in the near future.
Before I go on, let’s get it out of the way. Yes, Rubik’s Cube art is nothing new, and in all likelihood Nick Hall and the rest of the Cube Works team are following on the footsteps of earlier Rubik’s Cubists. But that doesn’t make Cube Works’ pieces any less beautiful.
Thinking of how hard and complex something must have been to create – whether it’s a song, a bridge, or in this case a portrait – makes me appreciate it more, and with Rubik’s Cube portraits the arduousness of the process is just so apparent that upon looking at these pieces for the first time I was simultaneously thinking of how nice they look and of how frickin’ maddening they must have been to create.
If you’d like to commission Cube Works, contact Josh Chalom via e-mail. They’re willing to make portraits based on images submitted by clients, so if you want to immortalize yourself in a geeky way, now’s your chance. Check out their website for more portraits.
Ask anyone who works on the Internet in a business environment and they’ll tell you anything that simplifies the communication process is an advantage.
