This flexicube is a playful look at the intersection of science and language. Each side features a different chain of linked words, which may be broken into various pairs. Individual words may be coupled with the one before or after to form common expressions, such as “rocket science” or “science fiction.” As the cubes are rotated, the images and words shift and change their orientation. The networks of red lines are loosely based on the veins and arteries in old medical illustrations.
