Conceptual Art - Sunken Car
This is a work of conceptual art by well-known artist Ivain Puig. Now since in conceptual art, the idea is more important than the actual form of the piece, this work is giving off the idea that a car is sinking. The floor has a gloss finish to give the impression that it is a body of liquid instead, which could also be implied texture. Also, the way that the objects of the car are cut and placed on the floor also gives off the idea that the car is in a sinking state.
