The Metal Cube
Many materials are called metal names such as "Gold, Silver, Copper, Brass" by borrowing sparkle from metal. 100 materials, called metal names, were scanned and stacked to create a square book that was 45mm across. The object that existed as a solid (3D) became a plane (2D) through scanning, and then piled up to become a solid (3D) again. Pages filled with metal expressions and borrowed materials made real. It was placed side by side with Brass, Copper and Aluminum of the same size to compare the weight and surface of the actual.
