Carbon Copy Is a Glitched Vintage Car Standing at a Canadian Parking Lot

Caitlind r.c. Brown and Wayne Garrett are Galgary-based artists, who create large public installations that aim to engage people with the process of putting the pieces up and also maintaining them. Carbon Copy is their latest creation and it is a replica of a vintage Plymouth, which has been handled in a way to look like it’s glitched. Fiberglass was used to achieve the wanted result and a parking lot in Canada was chosen for its placement. With this project the two artists want to send a message to people about the rate at which cars are marketed and produced, especially in the car-obsessed cultural of North America.

The two artists were chosen in 2017 by a jury to create this specific installation and were commissioned by First Capital Realty and Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada’s Arts Program Initiative.

The process of building Carbon Copy took around 5 months. After the foam sections of Carbon Copy were carved to shape, the pieces were fixed in place and hard-coated with fibreglass.
