Crushed car, custom license plate, wood, paint, chainlink fence
4' x 20' x 10'

The crushed car reflects on the long lineage of using automobiles in American art while also including personal verbiage on the customized license plate attached to the sculpture./ It is a wreck and an apology for it, a statement on good and bad, beauty and ugliness, uniqueness and generality, zeitgeist and collapse. It is formal manifestation of a destroyed dream of greatness. Materials include steel, felt, plastic, metal, wire, aluminum, expanding foam, paint, etc.
