steel and automotive paint

5.5 x 9 x 5.5 feet 

This new sculpture—a life-scale automobile shaped by contiguous ribbons of steel—contains the voids of four human beings so completely integrated into the convertible chassis that they are difficult to discern. A woman is behind the wheel of this cautionary joy-ride—with dreamsicle surfaces seducing the menacing teeth of the engine grill. Evoking a palpable sense of abandon this sculpture also warns against of the merging of human and machine (technology) lest the soulful purpose of the species be forgotten on Earth.
