"Vehicle headlights are on and they're not responding."

Headphones recommended.

EXP 04 was a Explorer Tour Vehicle used for the Safari Tour Ride of JP. On the night of June 11th, 1993, EXP 04 and 05 were put to a standstill outside the T. rex enclosure when the power was switched off and EXP 04 was subsequently destroyed by the T. rex during its initial rampage during the JP Incident. There are several easter eggs from the films that are scattered throughout the work, some obvious, some hidden and harder to find.

Cinema Cars is a series of digital artworks that depict famous automobiles from cinematic history and immortalise them inside a glass terrarium within a museum space. The environment the vehicle is situated in is just as important - a thriving ecosystem with hidden references from the movie scattered throughout - an abstract depiction of a scene from the world within the movie.

I like many resorted to watching movies as a means to escape the reality of being confined to my apartment over the past year. Cinema is a simple but powerful tool that allows us to forget our daily troubles by getting lost in the stories and worlds that are depicted.

The series plays on that revelation, and also represents a metaphorical aspect to it, with the glass case being an outward manifestation of our confined living situations and the inside environment being the world we create for ourselves.
