I believe the literal translation is “to be up to the nostrils” in other words “to be fed up with”.

    really amazing, you can just feel it sinking!
    Would love to see it for real (and I’ll probably revisit the work afterwards, and wonder if it hasn’t sunk deeper :) )

    Is the floor solid or is the entire room filled up with liquid?

    i think the floor is solid but glossed for the reflection and he just sliced the car and place it there. it’s pretty freakin cool

    This piece of work is older than the internet (well, not exactly) but you do very well in the translation.

    And for those of you asking, yeah, the floor is solid and waxed, and the car was chopped so it looked like it was sinking.
