This seems like one heck of an excuse for being late to
Honestly, when sculptor Christian Tedeschi forwarded these
pictures our way, we didn't know if this was just one of
those things that happens in Detroit, or another of Tedeschi's
sculptural projects. Recently, Tedeschi has been creating
a unique body of work in which he coats everyday objects
in diverse materials rendering them at times unrecognizable.
Through the simple application of tar and feathers, silicons,
the ordinary is transformed into the enigmatic. Whether
this particular piece was his handiwork or just a fortuitous
discovery, only Tedeschi knows for sure.
Tedeschi is currently exhibiting in "The Other Auto
Show" at the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit
This piece seemed like a perfect tie-in to the work in that
show and our own series of stories on the automobile and
transit in Detroit. (Wednesday, February 23 @ 7pm, CAID
is holding a forum on transit in Detroit, for more info,
