General Carbuncle, 2003 - 2006
Transforming a second-hand Ford Capri into the General Lee, from the Dukes of Hazzard, by covering it in little toy cars. Over four thousand toy cars were needed and so, in addition to searching out and purchasing appropriate toy cars himself, an appeal was started for people all over the world to send him their disused toy cars. The donator could leave a little message in the toy car, or mark it in some way, so they actually became part of the art whilst contributing to the sculpture.
