Electric Car
2012
painted plywood
5' x 5' x 10'
The electric car is based on the design of an existing electric car called Think. My sculpture replicates the original as an object for contemplation. My vehicle is handmade, motionless, and powerless. It is an attempt to own that which is difficult to obtain. The work raises questions about automotive history, car design, environmental impact, and American consumption. The electric car sculpture continues my exploration of American and global culture through the personal display, reconstruction, and arrangement of iconic symbols of our collective complexity.
