A - WOODCAKES
Along Clinton Street, in Toronto, youll find Albino Carreiras house of Woodcakes, a house decorated with thousands of small pieces of wood held together with tens of thousands of square head or Robertson Screws - the same screws surgeons used to repair Albinos spine following a near fatal accident on a construction site. Woodcakes is not only Albinos homage to the man who invented the screw that helped put his mangled body back together, but a form of therapy to help him deal with his chronic pain and anxiety. In addition to the woodcakes and screws, Albinos home is also adorned with plastic bugs, sliced up pool cues and other oddities. And what does Albinos son, Steven, think about his house, Do I enjoy living here? Honestly, I have no choice so Ive just learned to accept it. Since 1993, Albino has toiled away at his creation, which has now spilled over to his car. Originally a deterrent to thwart the efforts of car thieves, his van is now covered in thousands of plastic bugs.
