Telephone Book Hive by Kristiina Lahde

October 25, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Artist Kristiina Lahde created this towering paper sculpture using delicately folded phone books. Aptly entitled Hive, the piece was on exhibition at the Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens in Ontario earlier this summer. This is the most practical use of a printed phone book I’ve seen in the last decade. (via jealous curator)
