1953-vw-sphere

Look what Indonesian artist Ichwan Noor has done to a heap of car parts, a few scraps of aluminum and some carefully crafted pieces of polyester. This tightly compressed sphere resembles a brand-new 1953 Volkswagen Beetle that was somehow balled up into a globular mass of shiny yellow goodness.

Part of the Art Basel show that recently took place in Hong Kong, the artwork is a strong statement by Noor that’s resonating worldwide.  According to Hong Kong art site Juxtapose, Noor created this monstrous piece by “transforming, fusing and morphing” a vintage 1953 Volkswagen Beetle into this insane art installation.

The Japan Times says Noor has done this spherical trick with five different Volkswagen Beetles.
