Wales-based artists Heather and Ivan Morison's deceptively heavy looking cube is based on the tetra kites that was developed by Alexander Graham Bell in the race towards manned flight.
The design is basically based on Double wing Module , duplicate it and arranges it into a tight, cellular structure that appears as a heavy unflyable mass.
Small triangular units have been opened out by 30 degrees and multiplied up into colliding cubes that take their shape from naturally occurring geometric forms of the mineral Pyrite.
