We never would have thought that those harmless little sticks we use to stir milk and sugar in to our coffee could be used for anything very remarkable. Yet, Jonathan Brilliant saw inspiration. Weaving the sticks together he creates massive, complex installations that look like giant wooden webs.

Brilliant's series, Have Sticks Will Travel, are always built from scratch on site and take about 8 - 10 days to complete. The next showing is on November 4th at the True F. Luck Gallery in the Visual Arts Center of Richmond, Virginia.
