Every other Russian yard has a car that has long been forgotten by its owners. Rusty and mangled, it survives season after season, never leaving its place, being buried by snowfalls, and becoming a cozy home for those who have no other options.

There are dozens of these “garbage” objects abandoned by its owners in every city. Inevitably, they pollute the space: obstructing the walkways, encroaching upon the scant parking places and intruding into the urban visual environment as dubious urban landscape “decorations”.

The artists participating in Stenograffia Festival decided to address this problem by “cutting out” an old Moskvitch car parked in one of Yekaterinburg yards. They based their work on a well-known layer transparency visualization technique in Photoshop image editor.
