In creating her two-part installation, Autoplast artist Amy Landesberg contemplates our relations to cars, and imagines how an assembly of their parts might take on a life of its own. Using humor and dramatic scale, both artworks transform common car parts into life forms, and model behaviors observed in nature.
Autoplast II: Side Mirror Hive is composed of four massive honeycombs made of chrome side-view mirrors nestled below an overhang three stories above. Hanging parallel as ’bee space’ requires, these suspended forms simulate the nest geometry of a productive colony.
