build a cityscape out of the contents of a Tesco store
Department stores once used multiple items of packaged
goods to construct creative monuments. These acted as
point of sales feature displays, and were works of
considerable wonder at the time. (see link pic as an
example from a UK Co-op of the 1950s).
The idea of Tescopolis is to once again
take the contents
of a large department store (like Tesco) and use it to
build a substantial model of an entire iconic building,
such as (the hideously vulgar) Dubai's Burj Khalifa tower.
Smaller items, like packets of toothpicks, will add the
necessary detail, while most of the structure will
naturally consist of cornflake type boxes, and stacked up
tinned food items.
A tall wind-free atrium area will be necessary to house
the tower, along with the scaffolding necessary to
facilitate its construction.
After a period of exhibition time, the tower can be
demolished in spectacular fashion by swinging a large
ball towards its base.
