Shift the Obvious!

8 x 8 x 8 is a series of octahedrons which offer ideas for crossing the subtle limits of “normal”  everyday life.
Download the octahedrons, print them out (size A4), fold the sides and glue them to form three dimensional dice.

  1. Eating
  2. Sleeping
  3. Dwelling
  4. Personal hygiene
  5. Social contacts
  6. Work
  7. Leisure
  8. Moving around




Option 1
1. Use the dice to select a combination of choices, which would be perfectly normal in your life. Start from the question “What (kind of)?”

2. Turn one of the dice in your hand to make the previous normal combination  into a weird one.

3. Try out the new combination in your everyday life.
How does that feel? How do people react?

Option 2
Select one of the dice and roll it: tell a memory coming to your mind about the image.

Option 3
Use the dice in any way that pleases you.
