Gordie Hull and S2A in Torino and Dubai

Dear Shaded Viewers,
An explanation of what follows as expressed by Gordie himself. "In torino we made a lambroghini out of cardboard. Exactly to scale the same lambroghini the police now use there. Cardboardcar
in dubai we made a series of giant car jacks, also out of cardboard.
these are 12 feet in length and about 10 feet high.
there are two of them, tho in the pictures you only see one- the other is behind…
did i ever send you images from the exhibition in vancouver where we made a giant battleship out of cardboard? 14 feet long and 8 feet high.
i will enclose images of all.
