Swarm is a fantasia of car culture as an existentialist hive. The Caldersesque arabesques and the diorama’s charm are countered by the deadly business of driving cars and the environmental impact they have. In this case the cars’ fates are karmicly reversed with the bugs that normally splat on their windshields. The Best Coast’s location was surround by similar cloverleaf loops which further added to the installation’s resonance.
