Ron Arad Crushing Cars for Art

Ron Arad took six real Fiat 500s and flattened them into 12 cm thick sheets of metal in an industrial press at a shipyard in Groningen, the Netherlands. According to Arad, he is not destroying the cars, but “immortalising them”. The pressed cars are in display at his new exhibition titled "Pressed Flowers," at the Design Museum Holon in Tel Aviv, Israel.
