Artist Jonathan Brilliant took about 60,000 wooden coffee stirrers plus a bagilllion coffee cup sleeves and wove this amazing free form sculpture WITH NO GLUE! The exhibit named In Tension, are on display in a deserted drug store on the corner of 20th Street North and 3rd Avenue, till Friday when it will be dismantled into a pile of......wooden coffee stirrers ( to be donated for more art projects). I found it both fascinating and impossible to photograph in order to give the feel of size and shape of it all. We were allowed to stand up inside and it was really great fun.

I have lived in Birmingham most of my life. I think it's a beautiful, friendly, and interesting place to live. I hope that my daily photographs portray the diversity of my hometown in a positive and artistic way.
