Su Blackwells Book Sculptures






I recently discovered the amazing work of Su Blackwell via the Madschen Weis Way. She makes these fantastic sculptures dramatizing the stories that inspire her in old books--using the books themselves--to create what she calls three-dimensional theatre. The effect is both whimsical and tecnically complex--you can see how precise her cutting is in the "Alice in Wonderland" piece above.

From her Artist Statement: "We can no longer physically read the book, so in that way it is made redundant; and yet on another level it has taken on a new life and is telling a different story." It's very surreal, striking work; particularly when placed in wooden boxes lit from above.

If you are lucky enough to live in or visit London, you could actually own one of these beautiful pieces--they are at the gift section of Selfridges and also at the Victoria and Albert Museum. And you can see more of the sculptures here.

Just wondering if eBay permits you to sell [url=http://www.ticketchoice.com.au]concert tickets[/url] on the net? Do you know if you will discover any restrictions depending on what country you are in?

My parents have just known as me and asked if i could "get rid" of their two tickets to some concert as they wont be able to make it due to yet another family event.

Apart from asking close friends etc, i thought ebay would be a good location to sell them.

But whats ebay's policy on selling tickets? Ive heard alot about it within the news but ive forgotten what happened.

and if it matters, the concert is inside this coming month

Thanks ahead of time for the advice.
