Car Crush – a Mandala

As a first time visitor to Moscow the incessant flow of cars driving into and out of the city is one of the most stricing features. Our installation with cut out car pictures deals with both the aspect of wealth and movement versus standstill. By creasing pictures taken from car advertisments, the pictures are transformed into coloured paper balls. These paper balls are laid out on the floor of the gallery in the shape and pattern of a mandala thus adding the idea of meditation.
