    What a piece of junk!

    She’ll make point five past jet pump speed. She may not look like much but she’s got it where it counts, kid. I’ve made a lot of special modifications myself.

  3. demidan says:

    Makes me think of Gibson and his “Stealth Houses”, what a great way to hide your solvency, right out of Zoolander.

    @22: She’ll make point five past lightspeed. She may not look like much kid, but she’s got it where it counts.

    Not once but TWICE Jack has beaten me to a punchline on this post.

    I bow to his superior reflexes.

    i for one welcome our new dumpster-hottub-soaking overlords. it needed to be said.

  7. Jack says:

    Sir Spocks-A-Lot, you are not up to speed. Are you in the midst of Pon farr?

  8. Not a Doktor says:

    I’d love to have this, but I’m sure it’s an anti-getting laid device.

  9. minTphresh says:

    sir spock, perhaps his katra is stronger than yours, eh?

    Mmmm, stewing in garbage juice.

    It could have been said on slashdot instead.

    @27 – overlords schmoverlords, I can see the pixels

  13. toxonix says:

    Shit. I wasted all that time building a concrete one. I’m much better with steel. double shit.

    Reminds me of Louisa Dawson’s “Temporary Displacement” – part of the Helen Lempriere National Sculpture Awards 2005.

  15. Purly says:

    Won’t you get dirty climbing in and out?

  16. Eric Carlson says:

    That is much cooler than a snorkel tub, though could you imagine if it were wood fired?

  17. Jake0748 says:

    What… why?

    Well, let me be the first to suggest a nice soak in the dumpster jacuzzi, before retiring to the comfort of your bed complete with cardboard duvet.

  18. ZippySpincycle says:

    Deep enough for real dumpster diving?

  19. Daemon says:

    Is it just me, or is the waterproof blue lining actually painted on? There’s blue paint splatter that looks to be exactly the same colour as the inside of the dumpster…

  20. Wigwam Jones says:

    When you fall asleep in it, do you get picked up and compacted by a trash truck, like the homeless people do?

  21. wolfiesma says:

    To me it looks like one of these shape shifting machines, a la The Fly trans-mutator, or the thing from Altered States.

  22. wolfiesma says:

    Okay, here is the clip from Altered States.

  23. Wigwam Jones says:

    Possibly a new type of Tardis.

  24. grimc says:


    If you go to the site there’s a slightly closer shot, and the paint splatter looks much lighter.

  25. mokey says:

    i thought this would be something way different. and i was trying to imagine where this glorious dumpster might be. big rock candy mountain perhaps?

  26. Jack says:

    Hot tub in a dumpster, I know… I know… It’s serious.

  27. Wigwam Jones says:

    @ #11 Jack

    Let me whisper my last goodbye, I know, it’s serious.

  28. PaulRedeker says:

    Dumpsters are a great place to hide from zombies; providing you can get one with a metal roof. Eventually, the zombies, (climbing over other zombies), will break through a plastic top.

    But, once they get inside and devour the “contents” you have a dumpster full of zombies that can’t get out!

    Add gasoline, and you have an empty dumpster in short order.

    Of course, after the zombie war, there was no more gas, but I digress.

    i saw this in montreal. unfortunately there was a security guard around…

    i thought it was what the artist would have wanted.

    Bubble bubble toil and trouble
    Fire burn and cauldron bubble.

  32. neurolux says:

    It’s a good size and has a built in lid, perfect. I would’ve painted the outside too, maybe a different color, or tiles.

    How does one acquire a dumpster. Does the city auction off used ones?

  33. nanuq says:

    A dumpster hot tub would go perfectly with this hotel room:

    What is it with dumpster art anyway?

  34. iamcantaloupe says:


    The thing from Altered States is a simple isolation tank, used for deep meditation and other explorations into the psyche induced by sensory deprivation.

    No crazy tubing or machinery needed.
