AutoExuvium is an ongoing body of work that explores the concept of automobiles as “shells” or outer skin for those encased within them. The scars they bear suggest ‘impact’ literally and symbolically and suggest a strained relationship with their environment. Idealized visions of mechanical beauty are subverted to something tarnished and tortured yet still alluring. By compressing and pulling the digital file’s data the wrecked car degenerates further and serves as an uneasy, modern vanitas.
