Check out the latest piece by Denimu (aka Ian Berry), a life sized installation of a New York news-stand. Made out of layers of cut up blue jeans, the stand displays dozens of magazines, newspapers, coke cans and confectionery. It is currently showing at the Shooting Gallery in San Francisco, and he even added an extra layer of interaction by letting people tag the side of it with a bleach pen to make it more lifelike and realistic.

His installation captures a fading icon of Americana in the most suitable fabric. He has recently added a new part to his site where you can see more detail of his pieces made in denim, although nothing replaces seeing it live.
