On the western outskirts of Clark, SD, (pop. 3,436) you will find 9 red and white automobiles that appear to have been abandoned in careful formation. If you ask me, this is art and I’d like to know more about the artist. Years ago, my son Jon, while working for our local newspaper, went looking for a story about the person who was responsible but ran in to a dead end.
What does this installation mean? Well, like many works of art, there is the unknown intent of the artist and then there is the meaning the viewer gives it. For me, it is all about alienation, conformity and belonging. . . .
