Two weeks ago we had a visit to the beautiful Bristol Central Library to check out their exhibition Book Hive, designed by Bristol’s creative robotics collective Rusty Squid.
This was a beautiful animatronic honeycomb hive sculpture that interacted with the library’s lenders and passers by. The hive is made up of robotic hexagonal frames that have movement sensors and react as people walk past, making the books rustle and creak- a wonderful way to celebrate their 400th birthday.
Artists and engineers at the University of West England have crafted this masterpiece that is complete with 400 books- one for each year.
