Concrete Rubik's Cubes and Calculators: A Look at the Art of Engineering

The closing reception of the third annual Engineering Art Show took place in the Faculty Club on March 27, 2014. This also marked the end of the National Engineering and Geosciences Month (NEGM) that was held during the month of March in conjunction with the Engineering Students' Society, and Engineers Without Borders.

In addition to the display of the week’s art submissions, the closing reception also brought together all the sculptures that had been made during the event’s Concrete Sculpture Workshop, along with performance art which included students showcasing a myriad of skills that included live music, storytelling, MOD, and Swing Dance.

Here is a quick look at some of the awesomeness that took place:

Concrete Rubik's Cubes and Calculators and More
Concrete creations including calculators, mugs, vases, logos, and Rubik's Cubes... if you thought those multicoloured wonders of the '80's were challenging before, try solving them when they're made out of concrete!

About the Author

When I am not busy with engineering school, I love painting in abstracts. I am also a huge movie buff and will watch anything with zombies in it.

I would like to share stories that are personal and reflective of the great community we have built here at the U of A. My experience at the university so far has brought forward a tremendous amount of personal growth, and I can’t wait to help share the wonderful stories and student experiences of this amazing university.
