Jim Darling's 'Giant' in Beacon, NY

Came across this nice concept on Wooster today. Great creative use of rubbish and a community service rolled into one. I didn't have any idea of the scale until I read the artists statement, and saw that the torso was made up of 2 single beds!

Here's the artists notes:

"The area that I've been spending time in has multiple abandoned buildings, which are amazing. Unfortunately it also has a ton of trash scattered between the buildings. I decided to clean up the area by dragging all the junk into one location and making something out of it. With a little help I pulled four beds, six tires, and a large amount of scrap into one consolidated area... The trash that was scattered everywhere, was transformed into one giant character who found a great place to relax."
