See An Entire Amusement Park Compressed Into A Cube

A work of art for our crunched times.

Creative collective The Glue Society, whose previous artwork includes a melted ice cream truck and a room where it rains inside, has now compressed an entire amusement park into a four-meter cube. Artist James Dive took rides, bumper cars, and carnival prizes and compacted them into the colorful sculpture, which is on display at Sculpture by the Sea in Aarhus, Denmark, through July 1. As Dive told Creative Review, the project is about “the finality of a missed moment.”
