“Hungry to the Core”, Winner, Canstruction NY, Jurors’ Favorite 2014
“Hungry to the Core” is a vivid representation of an apple core created with 3,300 bold red and yellow sardine cans.LERA’s mission statement for the project sums up the spirit of the CANstruction competition which donates canned goods to City Harvest. "Every day, we rub shoulders with people in every walk of life. Every day, we walk past those less fortunate. As the apple's fruit protects its seeds, we can help protect those in need. It's up to us to keep our city's core, our people, nourished and thriving. In the Big Apple - a city that's Hungry to the Core - it's up to us to help those seeds grow roots and flourish. Here's an apple. It's for you." The project was a collaborative effort led by LERA’s team Co-Captains, Stephen Pfund and Ksenia Tretiakova, both Design Engineers at LERA.
