Graphite Cube Projection

Graphite, wood, glass, mirror, light bulb, cord

~10.4 x 12 inches


When a 6 x 6 x 6 inch graphite cube is lit at a vector normal to any one vertex and at a distance allowing nearly parallel light rays to reduce perspectival distortion, a regular hexagonal shadow will project along the same vector.
