What A Time To Be Alive
We live in a world where there is an urge to possess. A world of haves and have-nots. We want to show off with luxurious, expensive and grand items. Mark Sturkenboom responds to our collective thirst with the series What A Time To Be Alive, consisting of mirror objects made from crashed supercar doors like Lamborghini, Ferrari and Porsche. Cars that symbolize the possession obsession of the nouveau riche.
Sturkenboom reinvented a new status quo by disarticulating and materializing a fraction of a second, transforming a high impact collision into a solid state. Their liquid-like reflective appearance is the result of hundreds of hours of polishing.
