Compressed VW Beetle Sculptures by Ichwan Noor

Indonesian artist Ichwan Noor creates fantastic automobile-based sculptures. To form his “Beetle Sphere”, he used five 1953 Volkswagen Beetles combined with polyester and aluminum.

“The idea emerged from a personal perception towards objects that are products of a ‘transportation culture’, which induces hints/signs of spiritual emotion. To behold a vehicle (car) is to have a “magical” (supernatural) identity. Sculptures represent the interaction between humans and the object realm, with strong spiritual tension that affects the subconscious, and that yields a new “animistic” attitude. By combining the techniques of manipulation and substitution, the form of this sculpture tends toward realistic distortion, which allows new interpretations about the object (car), as a shift in perception that creates an associative meaning.”
