To celebrate its 400 year anniversary, the Bristol Central Library in the UK has installed an immersive installation in the entryway. The impressive structure, appropriately titled Book Hive, was designed by Bristol-based creative robotics collective Rusty Squid and will be on display until March 2014. The hive will ultimately consist of 400 books, to commemorate each year of existence, each encased in a hexagonal cell and animated by the specially designed robotics system. The books open and close in patterns in response to the movements of passers-by, resulting in a choreographed celebration of literature.
