Crushed car, custom license plate, wood, paint, chainlink fence

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.
