Florence Portrait

From his sneakers to more recent skateboard decks, CH has been following the work of the French artist Space Invader for awhile now. His latest work takes his pixelated aesthetics to the next level by using Rubik's cubes to create large-scale, relatively detailed portraits (like "Rubik Florence Rey" of the imprisoned revolutionary/killer), images of 9/11 and other similarly subversive images. The process shot gives a clue as to how Invader makes these pieces—is solving a Rubik's cube easier than creating a specific pattern with it?
