The World's Tallest Filing Cabinet

Framed against the sky, this outdoor sculpture looks like a Photoshop composite, but it's not. It's an unretouched cameraphone shot, uploaded from the phone to Flickr, of the work of Sam Yates, made from genuine Hon filing cabinets engineered and weatherproofed to withstand wind, rain, and earthquakes. Inside the cabinets are auto parts made from shredding an MG Midget sports car, steamrolling the fragments, then cataloguing and storing each fragment with a label like an auto parts shop. (DiRosa Preserve, Napa, California).
