On 29 November, 1929, Paul Schatz set in motion the cube, the solid until then representative of everything that was earthbound, rigid – static, even. In the course of his studies of the pentagonal dodecahedron, that to some degree most noble of the Platonic solids, he discovered that the cube can initially be subdivided into two stellated solids and one cube belt. It is the cube belt liberated from its interlocking parts that illustrates so impressively the dynamic qualities inherent in the cube. The model turns the richly varied movements of the cube into a tactile experience. Moreover, the pulsating movement inspired Paul Schatz to build several machines, of which the most famous are the Turbula, the Inversina and the Oloid.
