stacey lee webber changes the value of money

Maybe Stacey Lee Webber has the right idea.  Our country’s current economic state of affairs raises questions for all of us about the value of our money.  Webber’s art shifts the value of a penny by turning the small change into sculpture worth much more.  The website shows her sculptures in three categories:  Tools, Money, Screws.  Hmmm…wonder what she’s trying to tell us with those titles.  Maybe Stacey Lee Webber has the right idea.

There are almost one hundred pictures of her work on the website – scroll through all of them to see coins made into cityscapes, a series of fancy tools (no coins) that actually work and more sculptures that will make you think. A glimpse of her studio here.

  1. I checked out her site and was blown away by her work, particularly the hand tools. the penny saw and the filigree pliers changed my perception of what it is possible to do with functional objects.
