Hive 

1996

Carved pencil figures within pencil blocks

Böröcz orders pencils for his large compositions from a factory - Panda Pencil. When he carved figures form these unpainted pencils he noticed that their hexagonal shape was perfect for gluing together in a hive-like block. Some of these figures are movable, so they can be seen when they are pushed up & out. Other pencil blocks were placed inside one another; built on top of each other, they became towers.
