I was so amazed with this sculpture of Guido Moretti’s. Three observers in three different positions would see three different solids just like what has been depicted in this photograph. I am very much impressed with the brilliant mind of Guido. I now see this man as a genius of analytical geometry. In this incredible art piece, Guido has created a set of figures of orthogonal intersections with different tricky shapes as well as impossible figures.

About the Three-Bar Cube

The Three Bar Cube that you can see in the pictures is a polystyrene model. The model can be viewed in three ways and they can be seen as virtual cube, real solid and virtual and impossible solid. This is the outcome of using the Orthogonal Intersections method. Guido finds it fun and exciting to draw and create something that bring to mind a three-dimensional figure. Illusory illustrations have attracted Guido and this serves as his inspiration in many of his works. The illustration of a cube in perspective creates the deception of a three-dimensional cube figure. According to him, if the drawing is transferred to the sides of a real cube and the orthogonal intersection method is used, it can create sculptures. These sculptures feature unknown geometrical solids but when perceived from two perpendicular directions will look like a cube or another peculiar cube form.

About the Artist

Guido Moretti is a passionate artist of ambiguous art. He has great enthusiasm for working with analytical geometry. His creations are all fascinating and stupefying to his viewers. His art pieces can definitely bring delight to the eyes of both young and old spectators.

Thank you very much Guido Moretti for allowing us to post and share your Three Bar Cube. If you wish to see more of his ambiguous artworks, you can go and visit his website.

    This kind of “transformational geometry” depicts how parallel universes must function, each separate and in their own right, yet part and parcel of the same object. It reminds me of a Klein Bottle, a 3-D object with one surface. Apparently, it’s all in the eye of the beholder.
