The automobile. A device that slows down the space-time continuum, allowing the world to wash past in miles per hour. Juxtaposed to stagnation and disintegration, the auto reflects our collective drive towards the future, symbolic of our irresistible urge to move faster than nature intended. To encounter these vestiges of speed and progress as stationary objects of decay, is to witness the completion of a circle. A ring composed of human ambition and nature's will.
