Parking

Parking will start with a call out to friends and family for small scale cars. I may have to buy some as well. Maybe I can get a bulk deal and give them away after.  I’ll accumulate as many as I can gather. I think this wil be relatively easy if I can approach friends with kids. The intention is that no cars will be hurt in the execution of this piece.

I’ll formally receive the cars. This will involve cataloguing and colour coding each to mark who’s collection it comes from. I’ll create a fairly simple excel spreadsheet. The list itself might become a piece*. Hopefully I get a mx of old and new. Scratched and broken as well as shiny and immaculate.  I’ll make it clear that I’m not interested in those annoying “super cars” that Matel use to produce for their Hot Wheels brand.

The cars will be placed within elaborate sets that I’ll make to replicate different parking scenarios. Rock Festival, Shopping Mall. Abandoned in Woods, Stuck in Flood Waters, Crushed in Earthquake, Covered in the Ash from a Fire, Off the Assembly Line, In an Underground Car Park, etc. For each scenario I’ll take a large format photograph.

*A strange obsessive variation would be to go to an actual parking lot and catalogue real cars into a spreadsheet.
