An Installation by Jonathan Schipper at the Kimmel Center Philadelphia
300 S. Broad St. Philadelphia, PA 19102
"The Slow and Inevitable Death of American Muscle," a sculpture by the American artist Jonathan Schipper, is a machine that slowly advances two full-sized automobiles into one another over a period of 90 days, simulating a head-on collision. Though each car will move three feet into the other, the movement is nearly invisible.
