A moustache shaped see saw.

5 Cents
This playful insertion functions as a piece of street art and a see saw for waiting customers at East Austin's El Chilito taco stand.  The see saw is built from discarded phone booths and lined with rhino liner, a covering typically sprayed on truck beds for weather protection.  The sunglasses and seat backs are made of wood burned using a weatherizing process called shou sugi ban.
This is the first project by ¡el grupo!, a creative collective recently formed in Austin Texas.  We have a blog, please check it out for more process photos.
