"CAN MAN" draws inspiration from the character in the 1986 film "The Golden Child." However "CAN MAN" is more than just a magical creation for entertainment it also represents the more important theme of present day sustainable living and resource ingenuity. Another important influence is the work of American architect Michael Reynolds. The award winning documentary "Garbage Warrior" depicts the design and production of Reynolds's "Earthships;" a sustainable self-sufficient home built with recycled materials including aluminum cans. "Can Man" reflects this same creative spirit along with the desire to find new uses for everyday materials by eliminating waste. This "Can Man" has enough cute factor to captivate and inspire everyone he encounters.
