An optical replica of a Porsche 911 made of plastic pipes and adhesive tape nonetheless signals speed, mobility, and status.

last auto ever built will be a Porsche, the cars inventor Ferry Porsche is purported to have said. He may have
been right, because artist Hannes Langeder uses this model to show that to achieve stated objectives in changing our values
we must bid adieu to the golden calves we have worshipped up to now. Langeders object is located at the
nexus between creative process, social-ecological statement, and utility. The mobile sculpture in an urban space instigates
confusion and unrest. As a strategy for rethinking our actions and as a tool of change, it opens the exhibition2051: Smart Life in the City.
