      I guess it's in the eye/mind of the beholder. Somehow these resonated with me at some level.

      OP, I'm with you. I can see a play on the promise and hope of groundbreaking new car mixed with the reality of mechanical destruction.

      Just needs this in the background to complete the 'Tesla dream is unfulfilled' theme:

      No sarcasm, I get it. For some reason the pics seem to give the vehicle a some human emotion. Maybe I've watched "cars" too often with my nieces and nephew, but this looks like Lighting McQueen's sad face here.

      Plus, its hella flush. I'm all about the "asthetics" of this "build".

      This isn't a Dieselstation thread? I'm pleasantly surprised...

      It's got that Citroen-hydragas-in-the-lowest-position vibe to it.



      Also, I don't know if that oil stain on the floor is from this car or not, but it really makes it seem more broken. They should probably clean that up.

      I also get the art exhibitions feeling from these pictures.

      Maybe its the lighting, white walls and concrete floors?

      I'm a certified crayon expert and I agree. There's something about how oddly simple these are. People subconsciously love juxtaposition, and this is it. It's contrast at its finest. Two of the most simple and basic things man has created - concrete and white sheets - VS one of the more complex things man has created.

      The way the light bends and changes tone across the windshield, and it's really perfectly imperfect. Slanted on the ground, sorta beat up, still showing that it once was a nice shiny thing. Very cool, thanks for sharing.

      Thanks for breaking it down like that, and I think you nailed it, it’s seeing it in that context, not on some lot, but in a (relatively) clean studio.

      On the fence about this. If it had a separate plaque/message/something written at or adjacent to it, then yes. The background and floor oddly do look like the Tate Modern (London) a lot. After being there a few times, I can see how someone can argue this is "modern" art.

      Just needs a catchy title and a bushy bearded non-gender identifying millenian smoking a joint and drinking fair trade coffee next to it while doodling on a moleskine notepad with vegan pencils.

      They should also be throwing axes, but in an ironically purposeful woke yet non-confrontational way.

      I see an aired out Tesla with an ajar frunk and a missing grille. But I suppose that’s why you make the big bucks and I work in a warehouse.

      Visitors–and drivers–on the National Mall have been surprised recently to encounter the Hirshhorn’s jaw-dropping (rock-dropping) newest acquisition, a 1992 Dodge Spirit crushed under the weight of a 9-ton volcanic boulder with googly eyes. Installed Saturday, Aug. 6 in front of the museum’s main entrance on Independence Avenue, the sculpture is titled “Still Life with Spirit and Xitle” and features a car being crushed by a volcanic boulder with a comical smiley face painted on it. This slapstick disaster scene is one of the most well-known works of art by artist Jimmie Durham, a sculptor who is known for his sense of humor and irreverence.

      Due to its weight, museum staff used massive cranes, geo-location tools and precise engineering to carefully install the car first, and then the boulder.

      Xitle (shy-tuhl) means, “spirit,” which is the name of both the Dodge model of the car and the volcano from which the rock was quarried. Deceptively simple, “Still Life with Spirit and Xitle” is intended to capture the clash between industrial and ancient spirits. Nearly 2,000 years ago, the Mexican volcano Xitle, or “spirit,” erupted and destroyed the ancient city of Cuicuilo. To create the seemingly impulsive sculpture, Durham quarried a 9-ton boulder of red basalt from the archaeological site and used a crane to drop it onto the roof of a 1992 Chrysler Spirit. As a finishing touch, he graffitied the stone with a smug, cartoon-like face. Despite its comedy, the work carries a complex gravity, capturing the moment at which the spirits of ancient and modern collide. It will be on view through Summer 2017.
