Benjamin Kelley’s Cadillac hood ornaments are made from pulverized human bones. His commentary on the automotive industry is mostly mashed-up femurs and resin. Where does he get the bones? Online! There is, however, a bone shortage in the niche market since India banned the export of human remains, China hasn’t been able to pick up the slack and it’s mostly Damien Hirst who buys in bulk. Really. |WashingtonPost|
