Get Inspired with LEGO's "The Shapes of Imagination" Exhibited at Suntec

Talk about toys which help to stimulate creativity and innovation, and internationally popular construction sets company LEGO® comes to mind.

To spur builders to think and conceive ideas differently, the first LEGO® Certified Store in Red Dot Island will be displaying a one-of-a-kind multi-dimensional scultpure called "The Shapes of Imagination" - just for this weekend only!

Commissioned by Ogilvy & Mather, the 50cm x 50cm model is built from 18, 406 LEGO® bricks. The builder is American scientist-artist John V. Muntean, who specializes in putting together "Magic Angle Sculptures". A "Magic Angle Sculpture" is essentially an abstract-looking object placed on a rod that does not seem to resemble anything until it is rotated. Then, voila! Magical shadows appear!

Red Dot Diva visited the Suntec LEGO® store just now, and there were already a few kids there who were totally enamoured by the strange looking model.

Even Red Dot Diva found it very fascinating to watch as the model (which looked like a floating stray section of a disintegrating space station) slowly revealed 3 recognizable shadow shapes after a few turns of a handle.

Check out the following transition videos to see what shapes are shown!
