A double ended, frontless car. It’s a conversation piece in more ways than one, as Ben’s idea is to not just get people to talk about the car as an art object, but also to encourage people to talk inside the car as well. I love it, if for no other reason than it’s an almost daily reminder for me that there are no real limits to the imagination.
