 In 2010 I dreamed I was in a horrible car crash. When I woke up I could not believe it was not real. From then on I began obsessively studying real car crash photos: Material to replicate each accident with hand-destroyed toy cars and a large format camera. Each car sits on a white background and contains only one car. In addition, the photographs were enlarged to 20x30". In this manner, the viewer is forced to examine the detail of the damage from the outside. I hope the work brings up questions of interpreting and of coping with destruction.       Porsche 914 "1980: I get scared just thinking about it."
