I found myself next to this vehicle on the approach to the Bay Bridge the other day. It reminds me a bit of the artworks of Xu Bing and Wenda Gu. The Word dwells amongst us.

  1. I think that is a pretty car. Interesting. I dont get to see this often in Singapore or something.

  2. I agree, Becky. Actually, I don’t see this much in San Francisco either. I can’t figure out what its basic message is, though. I guess that’s one way it’s like Xu Bing and Wenda Gu.

    Yes a very interesting car. There are places where such decoration could be illegal. I also think that there has been an overkill of messages.
