This Mysterious Cube Uses Shadows To Display The Delicacies Of Eastern Art.

The annual ArtPrize competition in Grand Rapids, Michigan, is divided into two categories; one judged by experts and the second through popular votes. For the first time since its inception in 2009, one winner took both prizes at the 2014 event and it's no surprise when you see the amazing artwork.

Pakistan-born Anila Quayyum Agha created a larger than life cube structure suspended from a ceiling. "Intersections" is meticulous laced and carved patterns that bring the room to life with one single light bulb. The 6½-foot square installation is made from black lacquer wood. Agha took the pattern from the Alhambra fortress in Granada, Spain.

Agha felt the importance of Alhambra as it, "was poised at the intersection of history, culture, and art and was a place where Islamic and Western discourses, met and co-existed in harmony and served as a testament to the symbiosis of difference," she says.
