Hixson Brings “CANdid Camera” to Canstruction

Hixson is proud to once again participate in CANstruction with our entry, “CANdid Camera.” The Hixson CANstruction team, which was led by Hixson Architectural Designer Zohet Baba-Diaz and included associates from multiple disciplines with the firm, spent time on Tuesday to construct their masterpiece.  The team wrote this poem to describe their entry and its design:





It’s a given this project is prime,
And our subject is simply sublime;
An old-timey cam’ra
That’s sure to astound ya
That will bring joy best around mealtime!

Yes, our design is multi-purpose,
As it will supply a food surplus,
And the Freestore Foodbank
Is who you should thank
For this gift that’s given in earnest.

We the brains at Hixson have devised
An ingenious method to catch eyes;
a sculpture that flashes
to capture the masses
A vintage form of vittles comprised!

We have planned out every component
to make this delicious bestowment
That we wish brings a grin
For all, kith and kin
To create a real Kodak moment.

Our team hopes you enjoy our fixture
Of a Kodak brownie depicture
As we strive to provide
For needy city-wide.
Now go ahead and snap a picture!

“CANdid Camera” required nearly 4,600 cans of black beans, chili with beans, chicken and tuna, all of which will go to help the Freestore FoodBank after the conclusion of the CANstruction event. Hixson’s display can be seen at the Weston Art Gallery through the end of April.  Want to see how it was built? Check out the timelapse video on the Hixson YouTube channel!
