Chicago artist/environmentalist, Ira Ono, also known as the Can Man, has created a wardrobe out of other’s people’s trash. Is he off his rocker or just eco-passionate? I vote, he is a little bit of both.
His Can Suit weighs about 35 lbs and holds about 500 cans. He also has a suit made of pennies, with matching penny shoes, a suit made of cork with a cork hat and one made out of plastic bottles. He has plans to make the Key Suit too, which of course would be a suit made out of keys.
When I watched the video below I wonder if the Can Man ever considered noise pollution. His suits make quite a racket as he moves about, especially the Can Suit. Still I see a lot of potential in his artwork.
Listen and see for yourself as the can man explains his reason behind his recycled suits. Personally, I like the penny suit the best and the bottle suit would be ideal for sparing with siblings.
