rubik's crib


The title is a pun based on the Rubik's Cube puzzle toy, and the American slang "crib", meaning "home".

Notice that the perspective is very slightly off. Things lower toward the ground define up as a vanishing point up and away from us, whereas the nearer objects show up as a vanishing point above but closer to us. I think (I'm not sure) this kind of perspective is called "two point perspective".
