Indonesian sculptor Ichwan Noor recently debuted a sculpture of a warped VW Beetle that looks like it was conceived within a cartoonist’s imagination (perhaps a nod to Billy Gibbons’ more polished “Bus Ball”). Seemingly defying the laws of physics, Noor’s exaggerated, spherical car breaks the rules of the properties of matter we hold to be true. Noor showed this sculpture at Art Basel Hong Kong (which wrapped up on May 26) and has created other surreal vehicles, like a cube-shaped Beetle, for past festivals. Take a look at some photos below.
