Baby, you can drive my car Yes, I'm gonna be a star
--Lennon and McCartney
In this series, I combine model cars with bodyscapes of a model, Olive, to create street scenes and an imaginary parking lot. The series was inspired by a visit to the the Jumeirah Beach Residence in Dubai. There, I saw a parking lot filled with ultra-expensive cars---Ferraris, Bentleys, Lamborghinis, Rolls Royces etc. etc. I watched for a few moments as guys drove into the parking lot, left their cars with a parking lot attendant, slyly checked out the other cars in the lot, and ambled on into the night. No one paid any attention to the women prancing up and down the boardwalk---the cars were the stars of the show.
