If you could play Jenga with cans, and make something cool with it that didn't topple, that would describe the Canstruction 2008 exhibit at the World Financial Center. Since the artists were from top architectural and engineering firms across North America, though, the results actually were pretty cool. To magnify the coolness, all food will be donated to City Harvest after the exhibit closes on December 2.

The one above is called "DunCAN Donut," and was made from 3,241 cans, including sardines and tuna. Mmm, a sardine donut!

More photos of can art, after the jump.
