car crash collection

2015

The reason for crushing toy cars and model cars goes way back. When I was a child I tried to crash small toy cars in a bench-vice. Now, many years later, I am able to control six million kilograms with an eight meter high hydraulic press. The inner child in me made me very curious, so it did not take long before the first toy cars where totally flat.

What I really like about pressing cars, is the fact that the cars will never crush in the same way. If I press two identical cars, they will always come out differently. The curated input in combination with the unpredictable outcome of the machine creates always a unique art piece.

The collection consist out of different sizes.
