Remember as a kid when you'd pick up any ol' scrap of material and create an amazingly complex tank or heavily fortified hillside bunker? How about a life-size F1 car replica... out of Styrofoam?

Michael A. Salter never grew out of that art-for-scrap mode of thought as evidenced by his life-size and fairly accurate replica Formula One race car made entirely from recycled styrofoam pieces. The installation is currently on display at the South Waterfront John Ross Residency Gallery in Portland, Oregon and also features some of Salter's 2D works. [MichaelSalter]
