Dis-Assemblage Volkswagen Beetle suspended disassembled suspended parts explosive view Damián Ortega Cosmic Thing

Dis-Assemblage

Damián Ortega's Cosmic Thing, 2002 is without a doubt one of his most celebrated works, in which he took apart a Volkswagen Beetle and re-composed it piece by piece, where it was suspended in midair from wires.

It could be described as a hanging diagram where you can see each part of the vehicle, dissected for all to see.
