Sequin shed

Now here's something you don't see every day of the week, a shed entirely covered in sequins. It's the work of Sarah McManus who has recently finished a Fine Art degree course and spent a month sticking (and also adding by tweezer) more than 600,000 sequins onto a shed as part of her final course show: she also used 15 tins of yacht varnish and six tubs of confetti. Here's what she says about it:
"The initial idea behind the shed was to change a steretypical 'male' object/space into something more feminine and girly. As the process went on I discovered that what I was really trying to do was change something that's practical, traditional and inanimate into something which is aesthetically pleasing and a piece of art. It's one of a kind. Sheds are meant to be be boring, dull and lifeless, only fit for practical purposes. This shed stands out in the crowd."
