In our latest mini-documentary about the Revs Program at Stanford, we show Bruce Tomb's amazing 'Maria Del Camino' at Stanford. The artist calls his creation "a love poem to the car and her demise." The installation / vehicle was brought in as a part of the 19th Annual Performance Studies International Conference, held at Stanford this summer. Tomb's work with 'Maria' is unique in that it uses the vehicle as a medium, "acknowledging our relationship to the car as a tool; a social activator, altering the environment and our sense of freedom and adventure." Maria started life as a 1959 Chevrolet El Camino -- the very first year of production -- but has since been drilled with over 10,000 holes in its body, in an effort that Tomb calls 'pushing it toward dust.'
