* 1st Place 2023: Aaron Jiang – Problem Solving

Artist: Aaron Jiang
Title: Problem Solving
Media: Manila folders, wooden dowels
Grade: 12th
School: Bentley Upper School
Teacher: Artwork created independently

This 3d sculpture was created with manila folders and wooden dowels. I was inspired by the solving process of a Rubik’s cube and made this work to represent this process in a physical sculpture. The red cube, demonstrated the problem that need to be solved while the blue cube represents the solved state. The yellow blocks in between are the multiple parts of solving a problem and the network or dowels connecting to different yellow blocks show how there isn’t always one way to get a solution.
