Laura Jani discovered what seems to be an art installation done by Spanish artist Ivan Puig titled “Hasta la Narices”. If you google for a translation you’ll soon discover it means something similar to “Fed-up”. What is obvious from these shots below, the installation features a “sinking” VW sedan – which in reality is all but that. Update: Laura has also provided this spoof on Puig’s installation, a version that features her own sinking banana. Interesting approach to art, I must say…

    Love it on the shiny white floor. Looks like it’s flooded in milk.

    1st Comment!

    Those look really cool althouh i do admit i realised strait away that they arent really sinking

  6. Kimon says:

    That’s not a sedan. That’s a classic Beetle. Even with only so little left of it, it is instantly recognizable.

    Cool illusion though.

    ‘hasta las narices’ literally translates as ‘up to the noses’, which is quite fitting considering the effect the artist is after…

  13. eee efff geee says:

    in the first one look closely…….that gel stiff is a floor there a doors on the wall :D

  14. Yanni:) says:

    im confused- is the illusion that its not actually sinking its just half of it on the floor??

  15. RuloCore says:

    It’s “Hasta las narices”, and it’s a col·loquial expression that, politely, would mean: “I’m fed up of this”.
    Fun fact is that, literally, it means “I’m until the noses” :)

  16. Luie says:

    The transaltion means “Up to your nose” I am guessing because if you were in the sinking VW you would be sinking “up to your nose”

    Nice, very cool.

    What is the illusion here. You posted an image of a car that appears to be cut at an angle and placed on a shiny floor. People have asked what the actual illusion is and you are not responding to them. I hope that you will respond to me, and explain exactly what the illusion really is. Did he cut the cars roof off and place it on a floor, or was there digital manipulation or what. I just don’t understand this one and it’s driving me up the wall. Thanks, Thomas.

  19. Ktee says:

    its quite obvious…. especially the bananna…. its just cut at n angle and plced on a flat surface

  20. Santiago says:

    Ivan Puig is from Mexico.
