Junker Car (2011)

A 2008 installation in the courtyard of the former Santa Monica Museum of Art at Bergamot Station. The sign accompanying the work says “Junker Car embodies SMMoA’s commitment to art as social action. Junker Car is the ultimate recyclable object. It is a 1990 Mercedes Benz 300S transformed into a solar-powered, urban, agricultural model. A variety of succulents grows from the engine cavity, cab, and trunk of the vehicle, integrating organic life into our auto-centric environment.”
