6 Sides 2 Every Story

Western Nevada College

"More than 500 participants* were asked to illustrate their own perspectives by carving one side of a wooden cube. Each cube represents a current story found in a national/international article, internet posting, or magazine. The culminating project includes artists from the United States, Canada, England and South Africa. Within two years, 95 cubes were carved.

'By sharing a cube consisting of the same story, some artists connected with each other in their communities, while others shared one story with strangers in other places,' Nicol said. 'Participants responded to one another’s marks, their visual images and the initial story.'
