“Miles to Empty” is Shannon Goff’s homage to her grandfather’s special edition, collector’s series, 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V. While her grandfather’s car was metallic turquoise and white vinyl, Goff’s rendition is all white and made entirely of cardboard.

Each part of the vehicle has been uniquely fabricated and folded, in turn reflecting the many hands that collectively created the vehicles on the Lincoln assembly line years ago. Titled ‘Miles to Empty’, the sculpture features an all-white exterior finish and a highly-detailed interior scheme, complete with paper dashboard buttons and a carved cardboard wheel.

As a detroit native, Shannon Goff became inadvertently familiar with the rampant car culture of ‘Motor City’, despite bearing witness to the rise and fall of industrial prosperity in the city.
