The Slow Inevitable Death of American Muscle (Cars)

Sometimes the news needs art. And there is perhaps no better art to illustrate the implosion of the American auto giants than Karl Biewald's Slow Inevitable Death of American Muscle. It's a completely mesmerizing slow-motion car crash, where two American muscle cars are squeezed together over a period of six days to simulate a head on collision. I suggest you watch the sped-up footage of the crash to the sound of General Motors CEO G. Richard Wagner getting grilled (ahem) on Capitol Hill.
