 Installation at Shoebox Projects, Los Angeles, CA

2018

15-by-18-foot room

In 2017, 244 people died in car crashes in the city of Los Angeles. In June of that year, Dani Dodge was fortunate to survive being sandwiched between two cars in a multivehicle pileup on the 101. During a monthlong residency at Shoebox Projects in downtown LA, Dodge explored the moment of clarity that she and many others realize after a crash or traumatic incident.

The installation took visitors on a journey that started with walking though spinning soft sculptures shaped like car parts, two videos that represented road trips and split-second decision-making, and static sculptures created from salvaged windshields.

Materials: Salvaged car windshields, fabric, disco-ball motors, vintage television, videos, paint, glitter.
