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… very cool

  • lapetitefaon

    Liquid filled rooms. Sounds neat-O.

  • this reminds me of the cars covered in vines and nature from the real goods solar center in hopland, ca!

    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

  • brilliant idea, insanely executed

  • I would seriously love to see this in person

  • 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.

  • Seriously, so up our alley. Thanks for the share!

  • hillside

    This i awesome. I would be scared to see this in person lol.

  • CMR

    It looks like the car is drowning in milk

  • Ben

    The moment I seen this I was at an awe superb

  • Kristian

Taken using drones, the aerial perspective presents the harsh reality of past Apartheid policies and the continued disparity in a way that can’t be ignored. Check out more images from “Unequal Scenes” below.
