Erik Åberg’s Ghostcubes

Watch more with these video collections:

Bending on almost-invisible hinges, Ghostcube is a system of wooden cubes that can create different structures depending on how they’re twisted and rearranged. They’re made by Stockholm-based artist Erik Åberg.

If you’ve seen Brusspup’s Amazing Moving Cube tutorial, then you’ll have an idea about how Ghostcube may have been constructed, and how you can DIY something similar.
