Big Rig Jig
18-wheeler tanker trucks, steel
42' x 29' x 11'
Big Rig Jig is constructed from two discarded tanker trucks. The work serves both as a sculpture and an architectural space: visitors may enter the lower truck, climb through the tankers, and emerge to a viewing platform between the rear axles, forty-two feet in the air. Most recently exhibited in the U.K. for Banksy’s Dismaland show, it will soon be permanently installed in Las Vegas by Tony Hsieh. The work was made possible by a grant from Burning Man, as well as generous gifts from Peter and Gwen Norton, Todd Koons, and numerous donations received over the internet.
