Tank Tote Torch

We were in Amsterdam this week. When we went to FOAM, the contemporary photography museum, I had to ask why, in a city of canals and non-stop rain, they were having water delivered on a pallet.

I should have just waited. Because the empty Tank Totes were the lamps by which the mob would locate the museums participating in Museumnacht. They looked pretty sweet.

And a used 275-gallon Tote Tank is just like $50-75 on eBay. Seal the lights and fill them with water, and you could build a whole glowing house out of these things. It'd be like living in a cross between a world's fair pavilion and a nuclear reactor. The toy version of shipping container architecture.
