Cast Concrete, 10' x 15' x 18"

Created with the support of a 2009 Franconia Sculpture Park/ Jerome Fellowhip Grant. I have been using cars in my sculpture since 1989, both as transformative and personal forms. To me, cars represent American culture, both the cult of individuality and the promise of limitless freedom. They are completely impersonal mass-manufactured forms and extremely personal; we spend so much time in them that they become extensions of our bodies and personalities. We are so inseparable that I am curious what the future will bring.
