Above the Clouds: Part 1- The Land Rover (cars III)

What of the fantasies of transcendence today? No longer is it the lonely colonist of Caspar David Frederich’s painting Wanderer Above a Sea of Fog and now it’s cars! (MORE CARS!) Taken from “The Inspiration Room” – http://theinspirationroom.com/daily/2009/land-rover-defender-above-the-clouds/ – The 4WD transcends the clouds as if to enable the driver to overcome his earthly condition.

How are such ostentatious fantasies performative, how do they come to matter? (Beyond the production and consumption of more cars, but including that too!)
