Cosmic Thing

This is Mexican artist Damien Ortega’s Cosmic Thing, VW Beattle (1983),Steel Cables, 2002.

Cosmic Thing

It is an exploded version of the 1983 VW Beattle, suspended from a gallery ceiling exposing the cars components to create a very dynamic visual experience and (cosmic?) meditation on the basic assembly of day to day items. I like to thing of it as a dimensional drawing rather than a sculptural object.

Love it.

Must be really annoying to finish a piece of work like that and realise it may be the best thing you’ll ever do.
