It’s not a new thing and it’s not entirely automotive, however the Southland Museum & Art Gallery currently has an exhibition from a chap who turns car parts (amongst other things) into sculptures. There was a good dozen or more there but not all of them took my fancy, the Museums policy of “no flash photography” meant that my photos are below average, however they’re still good enough to show you people some of the more interesting ones;
All these sculptures are by Chris Meder, feel free to look him up, he’s probably got something somewhere to ogle online. Perhaps. If you’d rather just see the few more shots that I took, click the more.
