Detroit Artist Scott Hocking sits on top part of his installation "Coronal Mass Ejection." This particular part of the installation is an old torpedo car that Hocking found at Carrie Furnace in Rankin.
Materials used in creating the work included fiberglass, wood, paint, steel, iron, rust, epoxy, foam, slag, coke, dirt, stone, textiles, lamps, various adhesives, hardware and found objects.
Visitors of the Mattress Factory can climb inside the old torpedo car to better understand Hocking's vision and work.
Hocking said the torpedo car represents masculinity and femininity.
What Mattress Factory visitors will find inside of the torpedo car. The books are set on top of a stool in case visitors cannot climb back out of the installation.
The rest of Hocking's installation can be seen in the background.
"It is all going to come together to create this mysterious object of worship that can symbolize anything you want," Hocking said in an interview with the MF.
Hocking's installation is located on the lower level of the museum.
