Poster, Chrome Cube, ca. 1981
This is a poster. It was designed by Beck & Jung. It is dated ca. 1981 and we acquired it in 1985. Its medium is computer ink plotter print on paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.
In this demonstration of the capabilities of Color—an early color management software—the rigid geometry of the cube contrasts with the soft depth of the cloudy sky. At a distance, the dot patterns of the sky mix optically to create subtle color changes; a closer look allows the viewer to see the varied dot patterns that create the richly textured image.
