Scope and Content

This project series documents a project entitled "Cube of Fear". The project series is made up solely of a cubed model. The model has an opening at the top and the front. Within the model there is a mounted drawing which is visble from the front opening. The opening on the top of the model is to allow for a light to be shown through the interior. The drawing is placed in such a way that when the light is shown through the model it appears that the light source is from the lampshade depicted in the drawing.
