The Book Hive at Bristol Central Library
In celebration of the 400th anniversary of the first library being built in Bristol, a swarm of movement-responsive books now welcomes the visitors as they enter the building. Artists collective Rusty Squid has created this interactive sculpture known as Book Hive, using a combination of depth cameras for motion-tracking. It is programed to reaspond to the different ways in which visitors interact with it. As the behavior of hive evolves over time, it will also grow in size until 400 books are integrated into the installation by early February 2014, one for each year of library history.
