Canstruction 20th Annual NYC Competition

An astounding 100,000 tins of tuna fish, beans, corn and other edibles have been transformed into 24 towering sculptures for the Canstruction 20th Annual NYC Competition. Teams of engineers, designers and architects stacked the nonperishables into pop-art pieces including an Android, a Jeff Koons dog and the Wheel of Fortune. The structures are on display through the end of the week, after which they'll be dismantled and donated to City Harvest to help feed hungry New Yorkers and those still affected by Hurricane Sandy. You can pitch in by bringing canned items to the exhibit's drop-off station, to help reach the goal of collecting 50,000 pounds of food for charity.
