car“This slow motion car crash sculpture is actually moving at a speed of 7mm per hour in a choreographed collision.” That’s, uh, o.000004 mph. Watch Jonathan Schipper’s sculpture crash itself in time-lapse. ”With a dramatic inevitability that reflects our own mortality, over the course of the month, the car is eventually destroyed.” Further dammage below. Ooh, that’s good. No, wait. David Bowie, if you please…

Play this song while you watch. You’re welcome.

This exhibit is was part of the AV Festival in Newcastle, Tyne, UK. A similar Schipper piece pitted two automobiles against each other, advancing grill on grill over the course of 6 days in SLOW INEVITABLE DEATH OF AMERICAN MUSCLE“When we see an automobile destroyed, in a way we are looking at our own inevitable death.” Tick tock.
