Jean Luc Cornec’s Re-purposed Rotary Phone Sheep
Ring-ring. I am in love with these sheep! Be sure to check out this installation piece from artist Jean Luc Cornec's Rotary Phone Sheep as seen in the Museum of Communications in Frankfurt.
From the site: Does our constant manipulation of these familiar and classic, yet obsolete, objects in art and design signify a desire for a more natural state of being? The exhibition presses visitors to recall more simplified times through a flock of free-roaming sheep sculpted from old, analog, rotary phones.
Fron the photos alone, I could almost hear them and see them move. I do appreciate the artistic re-use of rotary phones--very clever and wonderfully creative. Check out the site and come back to share what you think of this unique flock :)
