You were the cube
Is it possible to create without destroying? In this story there is an observer and some amount of clay. The visible transformation of the material opposes the unseen change of the maker. Does conscious making go hand in hand with unintended deconstruction? To be more precise: what is actually deconstructed? You might answer that both are transformed nor matter visually or mentally. Yet their dependence on each other is crucial. The material transforms into the object while the observer turns into the maker. A new world is trying to exist. What is this world? If the object gains function (keeping a save isolation of the maker), then the maker becomes the work herself. If the metaphorical projection of a character into the cube is prevalent, then the object becomes independent of the maker.
