Picture It: Crunch Time

Car Crash Sculpture at Saatchi Gallery

A red Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder wrapped around a pole makes for a dramatic art installation at the Saatchi Gallery in London. The piece, called "Untitled (Crash 1)," is by German artist Dirk Skreber and is included in the exhibit The Shape of Things to Come: New Sculpture. Skreber used a vehicle-testing facility in Ohio to choreograph the accident and tells the London Evening Standard, "If you pass an accident and see a car like this, it's occupied by tragic thoughts for the people that would be involved, and you might see blood. This work gives you an opportunity to see the things like in a dream. It's clean and polished and abstract."
