Fernando Orellana’s Extruder is a response to the evolution of the automobile from an item of luxury to an inseparable appendage of modern life.

In equal parts celebration and condemnation, the artist challenges our reliance on the machines, effectively removing ourselves from the driver’s seat in the relationship.
