what could you do with thousands of old tires?
Well - one thing is make them into a great big tire pyramid. And make it a public art installation and convince the city to fund it and also properly dispose of the tires when the installation is over. That's what Scott Hocking did. He's one of my fave found artists. I stumbled across his found object artwork at this exhibit several years ago.
Tires are one of those hard-to-dispose-of-properly materials. They've also been used in asphalt, playgrounds, journal covers... among other things. But a big tire pyramid. Doesn't that sound like fun?
