DESCRIPTION

PUBLIC SCULPTURE GLITCHES K-CAR AS PLAYFUL COMMENTARY ON CAR CULTURE

People often think of cars as ‘non-places,’ mechanisms to move us from Point A to Point B. But cars are also microworlds, spaces for conversations + arguments, contemplation + boredom, encounters + collisions, cross-country adventures + mundane day-to-day commutes. In places like Alberta, it’s difficult to generalize the impacts of Car Culture on our cityscapes, our environment, our productivity, our mortality, and our lifestyles. Quite simply, the popularity of the automobile has changed everything.

CARBON COPY was developed by thinking about the relationship between cars, commerce, mass-production, consumer culture, surrealism, glitch aesthetics, and everyday spaces. Literally built from the body of a 1988 Plymouth Caravelle, CARBON COPY is designed with strong ties to Edmonton and the broader context of North American car culture. Ultimately, the work will become a wayfinding device for patrons of Edmonton’s Brewery District – whether they’re travelling by foot, by bus, or by car, the sculpture will become a familiar fixture in a landscape that has changed greatly over the last hundred years..
