The Slow and Inevitable Death of American Muscle

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.  

Watch the kinetic sculpture in real time on our website.

The West Collection and SEI's proud support of the Kimmel Center and the newly opened Innovation Studio extends our commitment to creativity, art, and innovation beyond our walls, into the city of Philadelphia.  The partnership between the West Collection, SEI, and the Kimmel Center will provide an opportunity to spur the imaginations of visitors through performance, art, and theater.
