The draped form references a classical heritage, but this work is firmly rooted in contemporary times. With no specific model of car identified, the work represents a universal icon, a motif of the 20th century that went hand in hand with a modernist vision of the future, and the right to travel independently and unencumbered through the free world. In the 21st century however, our relationship with transport is changing, curbed by our knowledge of the complex impact it has had on our society and environment. The artwork is presented on an angled plinth on which a scientific formula is inscribed, an unraveling of the catalytic chemistry silently at work as the air around this car is in a continual state of change and transformation.
