Incredible Full-Scale 1979 Lincoln Continental Made of Cardboard by Artist Shannon Goff

Goff12

“Miles to Empty” is Shannon Goff’s homage to her grandfather’s special edition, collector’s series, 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V. While her grandfather’s car was metallic turquoise and white vinyl, Goff’s rendition is all white and made entirely of cardboard! The artist described the piece to us as:

“a 3D contour drawing inflated into space. This car is wrapped up in both personal and political histories.  It is a critique on American society’s obsession with convenience, luxury and autonomy.”

Bombs1

Undermining the very concept of bombs, Greek photographer, Petros Efstathiadis, created his own out of various innocuous items like soap, flowers, lightbulbs, and sponges. He then photographed them for a series intended to reflect on real world issues like Greece’s economic crisis and our general global confusion in a playful, absurdist, and child-like way.
