How To Draw A Cube

Gustavo Eduardo de Campos Abbott

How many possible ways are there to draw a cube, given the condition that each successively drawn edge is connected to a previously drawn edge?


An innocent exploration of drawing a basic geometric form swiftly spirals out of control as mathematical magnitudes, computing complexities, and perceptual limitations come to light. In learning how to draw a cube, we gain access to a phenomenological lens that subjectifies the objective, irrationalizes the rational, and abstracts the orderly.
