Ant Farm

Cadillac Ranch‘ (1974) by Ant Farm.

Cadillac Ranch was installed near Amarillo, Texas, on Route 66. It consists of 10 Cadillac automobiles, representing a number of evolutions of the car line (most notably the birth and death of the defining feature of mid twentieth century Cadillacs; the tailfin) from 1949 to 1963, half-buried nose-first in the ground, at an angle corresponding to that of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.

Anri Sala

Anri Sala, ‘A Spurious Emission’ (2008)

The performance is based on an experience that Anri Sala had while driving across Arizona, listening to baroque chamber music on his car radio. As he pulled into a rest area, an unknown radio station playing country music intermittently interrupted the baroque music. Anri Sala commissioned a composer to transpose this sound experience into a musical score, performed by a baroque trio, a country band and a radio announcer.
