What a lovely sculpture. I like how the mirrors make it infinite on the inside.

Books as sculpture materials are fun. The Last Bookstore in LA is both a bookstore and is full of book sculptures and art presentations. The slideshow at Atlas Obscura is fun to scroll through.

"In the center of each gallery is a ventilation shaft, bounded by a low railing. From any hexagon one can see the floors above and below-one after another, endlessly. "

Not hexagons, but still.
