The fusion of the automobile and the cinema, as two mainstays of commercial mass culture, makes this installation a spot-on metaphor for what could be designated as “the projection of our dreams”. As the vehicle vanishes into an ambience of fragility and transparency, the evanescent nature of dreams comes to the surface, without overlooking the fact that they are usually grounded in some well-defined materiality. The connection between material reality and dreams is clearly shown through a round-trip device: dreams cut through reality as much as dreams are nourished by reality. A journey which undoubtedly has a lot to do with the history itself of car culture.
