STUDIOS NY’s 2013 Canstruction entry, “We CAN Kill Hunger,” has received the organization’s International award for structural ingenuity. Completed in October 2013, STUDIOS’ giant skull sculpture was built from over 9,300 cans of food and received several prizes in Canstruction’s local NYC competition. Over 1200 structures were built during the 2013-2014 Canstruction competition year, and of these, only six from each city were chosen to be represented at the International Competition. The judges commented on how STUDIOS’ delicate architecture supports the skull’s the eyes and nose, making the sculpture highly realistic. Congrats to the entire team: Eric Hofmann, Sejal Bhimjiani, Lauren Bordessa, Garrett Brignoli, Fei Chen, Graham Clegg, Robert Flaws, Emily Heausler, Adam Kagdis, James Petras, Matt Post, and Tomas Quijada.
Canstruction is a unique charity which hosts competitions, exhibitions and events showcasing colossal structures made entirely out of full cans of food. After the structures are built, the creations go on display to the public as a giant art exhibition. At the end of the event, all food is donated to local hunger relief organizations.
