Tour de Force, 2013
Assembled used tires
31.1 x 31.1 x 12.6 in / 79 x 79 x 32 cm
Tour de force consists of five used automotive tires. Forced inside one other, the tires are condensed into an extremely reduced space. Their physical density forms an accumulated mass that suggests a peculiar re-invention of the wheel. Approximately 280 million tires are discarded by American motorists each year.
