Macau-Mural-Left-Section1

Toronto-based CubeWorks Studio has set the record for “Largest Rubik’s Cube Mosaic Ever Created” by using 85,794 Rubik’s Cubes to recreate the skyline of Macau, China. The 13-foot-high, 200-foot-wide mural was installed in sections on the Macau waterfront in December.

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
