Can It!

By Nelson Harvey

One of the best ways to insure that important problems get solved is to make it fun to solve them. That’s the spirit behind “Canstruction,” a national competition that pits design firms against each other annually to build the most compelling sculpture out of full cans of food. Each sculpture plays on the theme of ending hunger, and at the close of the competition, all the canned food is donated to local food banks and charities. The NYC Exhibition at the New York Design Center closed yesterday, but I was able to sneak in at the last minute and get a few photos. Here they are:




The Loch Ness Monster, and rather interpretive tree in the background.




That’s a frog.


This racecar goes fast, and it’s also a pallindrome.
