Me and my Truck

Variable dimensions

Cardboard boxes and matches on shelf, posters in various sizes, nails, and key chains (transparent plastic and stainless steel) – all objects are containing found images from a Google search on “Me and my truck”, where people are posing in front of their trucks.

Excerpts from the exhibition statement:

People are expressing themselves through their vehicles. They are modifying their vehicles in such a way it fits to their temperament and looks. Thousands of people are posing in front of their trucks and posting their pictures online. With this project I have turned the found images from the Google search into tangible promotional items such as matchboxes, key chains and posters.

The project is part of the solo-exhibition, Sugar Things, at Rhys Gallery, Boston, 2006/07.
