Meet Vince Hannemann, otherwise known as the Junk King. He’s been doing installations and found-object art since he was 16. In 1989 he began collecting what eventually amounted to 60 tons of discarded items and used them to create an enormous cathedral. People would come to see it and Hannemann describes much of their interaction with the structure as spiritual. He says that even the children who visited were essentially praying when they played there. Watch this 6 minute video by Evan Burns to find out what happened when the city of Austin, Texas declared the cathedral unsafe and made him take it down.
