I've been Money Tipped!

Artist Dominic Wilcox asked over 450 children across his hometown and in nearby South Tyneside to draw their own invention ideas. In partnership with The Cultural Spring, a project to get more people in Sunderland to be inspired by the arts, he then asked local makers and manufacturers to make a selection of them into real things. Here are some of the results...(we particularly like the Pringles hook, very practical)

    Very imaginative.

    I think she'd need it very gently explained to her that, rather than using additional materials with their inherent financial and ecological cost, she could just tip the tube up.
    I could dream to wide extremes, I could do or die: I could yawn and be withdrawn and watch the world go by.

    or just stuff her arm down the tube... my hands fit in easily a child should have no problem.. :)


    and how would you get the hook in? That might need explaining too ;) I do love the drawing though.

    Is that the full name of the product or are some letters hiding round the tube? :eek:
