Several discarded windshield models collected from companies of the automobile sector in the city of Santiago, Chile, have been beaten into curved shapes on a steel scaffolding structure with three terraces. It’s a montage of see-through surfaces fading into darker shades of green, it’s also the superposition of fractures and cracks contained by black ceramic painting expressively delineating the weight of bodies in suspension.
The etymology of the American English expression OK varies, although it’s used as an equivalent of “alright” or “I agree”. Even more, OK is the acronym on the stickers glued on the windshields by quality control.
