Close to unnoticeable at first, the Flying Cube attracts the public with its spectacular construction when first encountered. The work consists of a small paper cube floating in the air beneath, but at a visible and tangible distance from, a metal tube hanging down from the ceiling. The fascination of the phenomenon engages and enchants the viewer as he or she recognizes the fragility of the work as it turns slowly around in the wind created by movement within the exhibition space.
