Sculptures of food

Last week, out of no where, there were little squares of space chained off in my work building’s lobby. Inside the squares were pallets of canned goods. Everyone who worked for the building was busy, so I didn’t get a chance to ask was it was about.

The next day, ta-da!

Sculptures made from the cans! Turns out, it’s a group of architects that break into teams and practice assembling these for weeks — and then go to locations and race to finish first. They’re on display through the end of the month, and then the cans are donated to the food drive.

    That is a very cool idea.

    Was the pumpkin lit somehow? It looks gren inside.

    The pumpkin is lit — it has a light that changes colors. Crazy, right? I couldn’t believe the crazy sculptures. They also have one that’s a Wild Thing.

    Those really are neat, and I like that they’re sort of stealth mob constructions. But then again, I am impressed with the displays that gas stations make with 12-packs of soda.

    One team made a Rubix Cube, which is seriously unimpressive next to a giant tomato-can pumpkin, a Wild Thing with sardine can teeth and the Leaning Tower of Pineapple. But, whatevs.
