The Books and the Bees

Book Hive is an amazing animatronic, art installation that celebrates the 400th anniversary of Bristol, England‘s libraries. Now on display at Bristol’s Central Library, this fantastic installation was created by the art/tech group called Rusty Squid.

The mesmerizing interactive work derives its name from the hexagonal cells in which the moving books are displayed. Book Hive will be on view in Bristol until March 7, 2014. Hopefully, it will become a traveling exhibit after that.
