A Glitched Vintage Plymouth Stands On End In A Canadian Parking Lot

Calgary-based artists Caitlind r.c. Brown and Wayne Garrett create large, public installations that invite people to engage in a shared experience. Their latest work cruised into Edmonton’s Brewery District late last month—a blue 1988 Plymouth Caravelle balanced perfectly on its front bumper and headlights. At first glance the car appears to have stuck a perfect vertical landing after a tragically wrong maneuver, but upon closer inspection one notices glitched segments that protrude from the vehicle’s body and front wheel.

“As part of CARBON COPY, we planned a playful public engagement called The Glove Box. People were invited to contribute to a short survey about cars, answering some simple questions like ‘What’s the greatest distance you’ve travelled by car?’ and ‘What’s your favourite road trippin’ tune?’ as well as some more challenging questions. People could contribute online or in person. We spent two days onsite, talking to people and collecting car stories on carbon copy pages designed to look like ‘damage reports.’
