This art car is created from the renewable resource of the sweet gum seed pod, dipped in left-over up-cycled paint donated from the basements of countless people and over 3,500 magnets. All of the parts are adhered by the power of the magnet on each individual pod.

“Mini SCUBA”
A knitted giant octopus will sit on top of this car with tentacles draping down the windows. The front of the hood will be a seascape of knitted crustaceans and the back of the car will be colorful fish and coral. All items will be hand-knit or crocheted with everything made of yarn and felted wools. The car will be driven by a mermaid.
