Penvolution, Bristol Central Library

penvolution 3

Following on from last year’s incredible Book Hive, Bristol Central Library is again hosting a thought-provoking exhibition. German artist Kerstin Schultz’ new work, Penvolution, is intended to ask how communication has changed in an age when young people are more comfortable holding a smartphone than they are a pen or pencil.

A real labour of love, the piece is constructed from a million pencils, and is beautiful to look at in itself (although we’re not really sure about the name). In addition to this, free ‘crowd art’ sessions will allow library visitors to expand the work to fill the library’s beautiful marble entrance hall.
