Automorphosis looks into the minds and hearts of a delightful collection of eccentrics, visionaries and just plain folks who have transformed their autos into artworks.
On a humorous and touching journey, we discove...展开r what drives the creative process for these unconventional characters. And in the end, we find that an art car has the power to change us -- to alter our view of our increasingly homogeneous world.
Subjects featured include: Harrod Blank and his Camera Van; world-renowned spoon-bender Uri Geller and his fork-and-spoon-covered “Peace Car”; Howard Davis’s “Telephone Car,” an obsession-driven telephone collection; and Leonard Knight, a religious folk artist who has painted his vehicles as well as most of an entire mountain in the desert as a testament to his faith.
Weaving his own tale amidst the others, Blank, as narrator, is the glue that binds these vibrant portraits.
This film looks at the quirky American sub-culture of “outsider,” or folk, artists who transform an iconic American conceit—the car and the road—into unique modes of both expression and transportation.
