The piece consists in 4 concrete wheels, compatible with those found in Dodge Coronet's from the 70's; cars that were used as a means of public transportation in Lima up until 2008. They were also used in small towns to transport illegal goods along the Peruvian coast and into Ecuador. As these vehicles are slowly disappearing, my approach towards them is to assert them as a contemporary ruin and/or urban fossil.
