New Yorkers were treated to the surreal sight of a giant Rubik’s cube floating on the Hudson river on Friday.
Towed on a barge, the colorful inflatable cube made its way from Staten Island to Manhattan’s west side and back again, commemorating the fortieth anniversary of the iconic toy and the seventieth birthday of its creator, Ernő Rubik.
The cube’s river journey was part of ‘Beyond Rubik’s Cube,’ an exhibition running at Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, N.J, in partnership with Google and Ernő Rubik. The $5 million exhibition offers 7,000 sq ft of puzzles, history, art and engineering inspired by the famous cube.
“The goal of the exhibition is that it’s interactive and designed to inspire peoples’ creativity – we’re doing things like this (floating cube) to get people thinking,” said Liberty Science Center’s Mary Meluso.
The exhibition, which runs at Liberty Science Center until November, will go on an international tour (accompanied by the inflatable cube), for seven years.
