Sensible is the New Stupid, an upgraded turtle soaring at approximately 10ft high. At his core he stands for hope, a spin off from the story, The Hare and the Tortoise. If the hare wouldn’t have been arrogant and took a nap, he might have still won. Making the moral of the story irrelevant.
Being sensible in our countries current climate is an equal risk as being stupid. Therefore taking risks - or being short sighted and “stupid” seems to be the much smarter, or at-least beneficial way of living. In this case, you may as well be the hare… and so the turtle has been upgraded with two big ass HYPER DRIVES, and a HYPER CAN to counter this, suggesting hope… for what is for you to decide.
HYPER DRIVE 4000 is the all new Southan Industries development, much smaller than the previous drives, but packs a bigger punch. The HYPER DRIVE 4000 is the evolution from the Hyper Drives installed onto the Sensible Is The New Stupid Turtle.
Lubber Wheel, celebrating the clumsy things people do for their love of the motorised wheel(s). “Bloody wheel lubbers!!”
I’ve seen and done a lot of daft things over the years with people and their emotional attachment to their vehicles. I’ve always been on the sour end of it, so I’ll never truly understand, and vice versa. I think they’ve just watched too much Top Gear.
The mix of biological and mechanical features of the sculpture suggest how emotions get so intertwined, almost becoming a burden on each other... he’s clumsy, but he doesn’t care.
So this is Southan Industries way of saying “so long and thanks for all the fish”.
ICU is a twist on our technology’s cameras always watching us. You see me, I C U. The little hat is to bring back a light hearted comedic feeling towards a typically dark subject.
