"Another way is to deconstruct a cultural icon that is not just an icon, because it is also a machine that has a function, and to remake it on its own logic. It’s a car that still works. It doesn’t run, of course; the motor is gone. But in a way, you can go inside. You can feel speed."
- Gabriel Orozco
