Jean-Luc Cornec's Telephone Sheep

Talk about telephone installations! Jean-Luc Cornec’s Telephone Sheep is totally made from telephones and telephone cable. There is a whole flock of them, artfully arranged at at the Museum for Communications in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.  Some of the sheep appear to be grazing, some huddled together, all in a realistic manner.

This is one of the most imaginative contemporary art pieces created with a touch of whimsy and nostalgia I’ve seen. Now we know where some of those old-fashioned, rotary dial phones went. It may be daft, but it sure puts a smile on many faces.
