Dissembled objects, frozen in mid-air

Mexican artist Damián Ortega started out as a political cartoonist, but has since gone through down a decidedly artsy slant to comment on anything from consumer culture to perception. His 2007 sculptural series Controller of the Universe had him dissembling everyday objects like cars, and then freezing them in mid-air in an explosive motion. These are so beautiful.
