I hope that your weekend was as lovely as the Winnipeg weather this weekend!
I know everyone is aware of the construction at the airport, but not everyone knows about the CANstruction that happened late last week! This is so cool that I am posting TWO videos for you today! What a way to start the week, right?
CANstruction benefits Winnipeg Harvest. If anyone was at Polo Park over the weekend, you might have seen all of the big sculptures made out of canned goods! Winnipeg Airports Authority put in an entry, and although I’m biased, I think ours is the best entry! Not only did our team build the tower, an airplane and a baggage carousel completely out of cans, but they also incorporated light, motion and sound!
If you want to see it for yourself, head down to Polo Park with a can in order to cast your vote (for our sculpture, of course...hehe). The cans are staying up until Oct. 20th.
And finally, here are the videos. The first one is a time lapsed video of the practice build, and the second one is a short clip of the finished product at Polo Park. Enjoy, and have a great Monday!
