woven tile hexahedron

Copies of a single metal tile are woven together to form a cube with a concave vertex.

Any form based on connected cubes can be created with this tile.

Assembly is a matter of bending the tabs just enough to they curve into the next tile’s slot. The ones on the corners are more difficult, but putting everything together took less than an hour (the way I remember it).

This piece was recently on display at RED Gallery as part of an A1 Lab Arts group show.

Three rectangular solids make up the base. Brass pins hold the three pieces together without glue.
