Floating dice

The world's most ambitious game of craps.

U.S.-based artist Max Mulhem has embarked on a very ambitious roll of the dice. His art project, Aquadice, launched two gigantic 16-meter-cubed floating dice from the Canary Islands in December. The objects of chance are kitted out with GPS so people can follow their seafaring journey on Facebook. Mulhem refers to his work as the “greatest floating craps game on Earth.”

For those wondering, it is technically illegal to just throw something that big into the ocean unobserved, but Mulhem says the dice are designed to collapse on impact and that their bright orange colour should make them very visible to vessels.
