Arizona (another kind of art)

this is just a few pictures of the kind of art my Uncle Alan does. he makes cars. while i was there i got to have some good conversations with him about his work and the thought and pride he has in it. there are many aesthetic decisions that he has to make when making one of his cars, from choosing which parts to combine to considerations of how to modify parts to get the right shape. the second and third pictures are of a car he was working on, he had chopped the roof and the bed many times to get the proportions just how he wanted them, it is a really cool process.

obviously this project is not complete yet, but it is fun to see at this stage... maybe i can get a picture of it when it is finished and post that later.
