Sculpture & Photography > Rambler Rebel

Rambler Rebel relates to what is arguably the first “compact” North American car and comments on the current economic downturn of the automotive industry. This sculpture is the unfolded and flattened origami model of the car; it shares the same dimensions. Consumer-grade sheet aluminum, a material used to temporarily cover and repair auto bodies, was folded, enameled and then unfolded. The final sheet - a memory of its original form - rotates on a pedestal, reminiscent of shiny car-show displays.
