      Neither did I until I saw it on the wall there. There were other famous installations but I thought this was unusual because it literally covered all the flavours from Campbells. I can see in about 20 years from now when Campbells would have changed considerably this installation would be quite nostalgic for people who lived in the 70s.

      Here is a video and commentary of the installation – CAMPBELL SOUP CANS
