Crash Bonsai

CrashBonsai is the creation of John Rooney, an artist who is torn between the desire to create and destroy. Recently, he has been making bonsai plants, and combining them with model cars and trucks which he has creatively smashed and melted, to create “CrashBonsai,” little living car crash sculptures.

Available on a limited basis in some Boston area stores, you can see his work by visiting the web gallery. Now through this web site, he is offering his crashed car and truck models to bonsai gardeners who wish to use them as accessories for their own creations, making their own CrashBonsai.

Il Diario di un Fante della Grande Guerra
Questo blog � nato da una scommessa di fine estate.
Alla fine dell’ agosto 2003 mia moglie ed io giravamo per i campi di battaglia della Grande Guerra.
Passando per quei luoghi, a Francesca erano tornati in mente alcuni sbiaditi ricordi d’infanzia, quando la nonna le raccontava di un suo fratello morto in guerra a 23 anni, forse vicino Gorizia. Conclusa la guerra, la famiglia Suma aveva ricevuto dal Ministero una pergamena a ricordo del proprio congiunto: fine della storia. Non se ne era saputo pi� nulla e peraltro anche la nonna non c’era pi� da diversi anni.
Nella nostra storia, dunque, l�unica traccia era un nome: Concetto Suma.
Perch� non provare a cercarlo?
