Candied Hot Wheels




Amazing art piece. All my students went bonkers over it (not a cool way to express enthusiasm, but apt). Some looked at each car, wondering about the inspiration. Others noticed the color gradient. Collecting obsession, gender issues, and merchandising also came up.
We even liked the price: $12,000 for the entire sculpture, $100-500 per car. C O O L.
Artwork by Shane Swindler

Kloe,

Where did you see this? I very much would like to apply my eyeballs to it directly.

Thanks,

RG
