Mindbending artist Alex Chinneck has done it again.

First there was the melting house. Next came the inverted pylon. Most recently was the building splitting down the middle. Now there's this knotted postbox — titled Alphabetti Spaghetti — to marvel at.

The artwork is one of three, and the only one in London (there are identical copies in Margate and Sheffield). This one lives in Caxton Works, a mixed use development in Canning Town. It's another case of Chinneck transforming the everyday into something extraordinary.

While the sculpture — because at the end of the day, that's ultimately all this is — looks fantastic, we don't recommend trying to use it to send any actual post.
