TULSA, Oklahoma -- At a time when everyone seems to be trying to make money off nearly everything, News On 6 reporter Rick Wells found a photography project that's purely for fun.

The good news is you and 800 of your closest friends can still get in on it.

It's called the Cubed Project. Geoffrey Hicks is a Tulsa photographer and several years ago he photographed 100 people one at a time inside a cube.

"The natural progression seemed like a thousand. Should I do another hundred or a hundred fifty, that's kind of the challenge of it is the thousand," Hicks said.

Hicks said he could take the cube to big public events and get a thousand people in a big hurry, but that's not what this is about.

"Literally, this is for the sake of art and for the fun of it, that's why people enjoy doing it," he said. "I don't pay anyone and no one pays me."

Geoffrey doesn't take tips and is not interested in selling you your photograph. It's just a fun project for the art of it. His studio is in small closet-like space in the back of a downtown law office.

"I'm just looking for people who are happy and want to take some of their time to be part of the project," he said.

So here's how you can get involved: Contact Geoffrey on the website, arrange a time to come in get into the cube and strike a pose. You can dress up or dress down. The rules are pretty simple, no couples, no pets, no props.

"It's a real fast process," he said.

If you want to participate, there are plenty of spots left. Just contact Geoffrey on the cubed project website and make an appointment.
