Art Description

Sculpture: Metal, Glass, Wood, Wax and Plastic on Plastic, Wood and Iron.

Explanation:

This piece is made from car miniatures representing a highway around a city. It is supposed to show to viewers how dull can a routine of city life can be. How boring could life eventually become when lived without passion for work and how repeating it can become. The road is made from wax, and cars from plastic.


Few words:

This piece was inspired by the daily routine of people who have a job for which they have no interest in. A job for which they feel like robots in a row, driving for work every day back and forth without meaning , without interest, without passion, without hope. Only black and grey.
The only oxygen to breathe comes from trees between traffic lanes.
Back and forth without meaning.
Robots in a row.
Black and grey every day.
