To recap: A few years ago, Brooklyn artist Jonathan Brand sold a 1969 Ford Mustang he rebuilt with his father to pay for an engagement ring. In his latest work, entitled "One Piece at a Time," he's getting it back by reconstructing that Mustang, piece by piece, at 1:1 scale.
Except he's rebuilding it from scratch with a very unlikely medium. Paper.
Yes, that's right — this Mustang is built out of nothing but paper.
And while yesterday all we had were a few detail shots, now we've got — thanks to our great intern Raphael Orlove — this amazing gallery of the still-incomplete-but-still-totally-awesome paper Mustang.
It's amazing taking a look at some of the details — like the keyhole on the door or the interior of the backseat — it just looks so amazingly lifelike. What do you think?
I think that I can't wait until it's complete.
