If you're interested in spherical cars you will enjoy this creation by artist Ichwan Noor. He tactfully used the exterior of a vintage Volkswagen Beetle and crumpled it up into a giant ball. The installation may look playful because of the bright yellow paint and soft round lines, but playing any sort of game with this monstrosity would end very poorly for a human.

Spherical cars are grand works of pop art. Ichwan Noor presents his version of a sphere car installation as a look at transportation culture. The dimensions for the sphere are 180 x 180 x 180 cm. It is constructed from real, original parts from a vintage 1953 VW Beetle and a mixture of aluminum and other adhesives.

If you like Volkswagen and art you will be happy to see this sphere car creation. This installation plays with the fun concept of crumpling something up to make it more valuable.
