Interesting image John, just some crushed cars, but are these to be recycled? as the mix of different materials, tyres, alloy wheels, probably all manner of other stuff in a car will be a problem later. Or are they just as a wall to guide to the car park?

A sobering reminder that fate awaits the car !

There are around 40 blocks like this - it's a wall, it's an art installation. If you've never been to the Custard Factory, it's worth a visit. Varied, fashionable, loads of weird and wonderful things in the shops and on the street...

But the roads there are awful just now: suffering from the extension of the Metro system, and work for HS2 - the Birmingham station will be a few hundred yards from this.

Custard Factory - it was owned by Bird's, famous in the UK for producing custard powder...

The genius in this picture is the concept of turning waste into art and useful purpose...
Could probably work in mono as well.
Like the enigmatic structures!
Many greetings!

They used to be somebodies pride and joy, and now a wall for a car park. Now, as cars enter the car park, they can reflect that could be me in a few years time.

Each on a work of art in its own right - crush a car, get the same overall shape but never get the same detailed outcome…

Random fact did you know Mr Bird, who was a chemist, invented the custard powder for his wife who loved custard but was alegeric to egg. What a guy!

Like gabion cages but filled with cars not stones - great idea and quite impressive.

I had to look three times to see what this is, John. It becomes a wonderful abstraction.

Hannah - I didn't know that it was an act of love to create Bird's Custard Powder. Thank you!
