Exploring Piero Manzoni - Qualities in a tin can.

The following are conceptual designs for tin cans (well... their labels at least), related to an international project on exploring Piero Manzoni's tin label art.

How would a tin can look like if it contained character qualities?

  Logic. I guess often compared with being a know-it-all?

  When not wanting to be called shallow. Layers and layers to peel off.

 I think this one is pretty self explanatory.

I wanted to give love a try, but the idea i came up with was beyond the scope of this. I wanted to make a custom tin can shaped cylinder, that was made out of semitranslucent plastic (yeah, not tin) that was bulging out at the top and bottom, with light and heating elements inside to both light and warm it up.
