The Art of Darkness

Crash Bonsai“Crash Bonsai” sounds like a video game character, doesn’t it?

Artist Josh Rooney, who is “who is torn between the desire to create and destroy,” carefully smashes model cars and combines them with bonsai trees. His creations are available in some stores in the Boston area, and he also sells the little “crashed” cars online for inclusion in your own bonsai garden. The prices are fairly steep, but the cars are very artfully smashed.

This would be a hilarious addition to a terrarium or desktop bonsai tree. If you’re good at model-making, you could try your hand at creating a DIY version for yourself or a loved one. Give the gift of carnage!

    lol! I’ve always hated those ceramic fishers but enjoyed miniatures. This sounds like something I might need to try on my own :)
