Was so happy to receive Cube 115 from Don, a security guard at Millennium Park, yesterday afternoon. I asked Don if he had seen any cubes around the park. He said he had found one and he was gracious enough to share the cube with me so I could participate. Believe it or not, after Don gave me the cube, a colleague of Don told me he had seen another cube in the garbage by the Cloud Gate sculpture.

Later that evening, after visiting the information desk in the lobby of the Art Institute with cube 115. I went over to the garbage can and to my amazement, there was another cube sitting in the bottom of the can! I fished it out, cleaned it off thoroughly and now I can take photographs for the project too as well as share the fun of the Red Cube project with others on Facebook

Hey Brad, did you ever pass your cube on to a Facebook friend? We'd love to hear/see an update. Thanks!

Hello! Sorry for not updating in a while. Yes, I passed on the cube to my girlfriend, Nancy. She was very excited to participate and she has already passed it on to her friend Molly, whom was also very excited. Molly posted it on her Facebook page and now Molly's friend is going to take the cube. More details as they become available.

Here's a photo of Nancy with the Cube!

Happy to receive my cube and then pass it along, I posted on Facebook that I had the AI cube assignment and got a quick response from my friend Molly. As a roller derby queen and dodge ball superstar, Molly is always ready for a challenge and an adventure. It didn't take long before the cube was happily on its way, headlining as the status of other Facebook pages.

Thanks for the cube Nance! I saw the ads for the red cube project at my bus stop--go figure that I show up to work, and you've got one of them! Nance and Brad are fluent in all things Chicago so it was only appropriate that they had a red cube.

The cube and I had a great time, but we decided it best to go our separate ways. Super Ian is a speech team judge on weekends and dodgeball player by night. He is pursuing his MBA and loves trains and bicycles, scotch, and pretending to be British by wearing tweed suitcoats. The cube is in good hands.

Dearest Molly,

I must say that this cube has changed my life. Not only is it red, but it is cubed. It is possibly my favourite object, and almost my favourite colour. I hope I have lived up to your cube expectations.

The cube changed my life, and now it is off to change other lives. Adri--a mother of two, full-time student, part-time student worker--now has the cube, and hopefully her children enjoy it almost as much as I did.

Time to go put on a tweed jacket and ride my bike.
