Squashed Bugs: VW Cars Compressed into Spheres & Cubes


Fans of the classic Volkswagen Beetle will be amazed or disturbed to see their favorite vehicle squished like a bug.


Indonesian sculptor Ichwan Noor takes apart VWs and wraps them into uncannily perfect spherical and cubical works of retro car art. The deformed wonders are remarkably well cared-for, at least as well as can be said of such a strange condition.



His preference for these particular models stems from their recognizable nature – they are immediately obvious as Beetles, a classic design, no matter what form they are converted into. One can only hope he is working with models that would not otherwise be roadworthy!
