Peace Cubes / Virtual Light and Colour Cubes
  • Development and dissemination of a proliferating set of images based on developed models of the peace cubes / virtual light and color cubes as embodiments of properties of light and of nature. The existence of the cubes was discovered in response to a request from the outgoing Executive Director of UN-Habitat to explore the use of colour to identify the role of partners in a proposed web site for follow-up to Habitat II.

    The Light and Colour Cubes were dedicated as Peace Cubes at an Equinox Earthday celebration next to the Peace Bell at United Nations Headquarters in March 1997 and have emerged as icons of Information Ecology and of a holistic approach - with the dimensions of red, blue and green appearing to correspond to dimensions of economy, society and environment - the three "pillars of sustainability" - as well as to dimensions of body, mind and spirit.
