Man wins and crashes Lamborghini

A US truck driver who won a Lamborghini supercar in a competition crashed it just six hours later. David Dopp, 34, from Santaquin, near Salt Lake City, Utah, now plans to sell the £190,000 Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster.
“Yeah, I got it on Saturday and I wrecked it on Saturday,” he told local reporters. The father-of-six says he can’t afford the insurance or the taxes on the lime green convertible which he won in a contest run by a local chain of shops.“That’s why rich people own them,” he said. “The poor people like me don’t. I have bills more important than a Lamborghini. I’ve got a family to support.”
Mr Dopp was taking a friend for a spin in the car when he hit black ice while taking a corner at about 45mph.
The car went through a fence and came to rest in a field about 75ft from the road with damage to both front and back ends of the car, plus a punctured oil pan and tyre.
His wife Annette admitted: “My heart pretty much fell out. They said they were OK. Then came, you know, that feeling when your heart drops and you’re like, ‘Oh, my gosh. What do we do now?’”
Police say the Lamborghini’s high-performance summer tires weren’t suited for icy conditions. Happily for Mr Dopp, he was insured. –YN

10 Story Building Transform the Facade 1000 Recycled Doors

South Korean Artist Choi Jeong-Hwa used 1000 brightly colored recycled doors to transform a bland 10-story building into an eye-popping visual indulgence. Jeong-Hwa is a master of using found objects to make provocative spaces, and the project is one of his most ambitious attempts to place normal things in an extraordinary way. The doors stretch up the scaffolding of the mid-rise, giving the hulking mass a pixelated charm. 02 more images after the break...
Choi Jeong-Hwa’s imagery is born out his desire to let art engage with the greater population. His work is almost delusional – he takes ordinary, often discarded items and uses them to create unique spaces.
1000 Doors engages with the entire city of Seoul through its immense scale. The mass of doors reads like a crazy advertisement from afar. Up close, the juxtaposition of the common doors scaling the full height of the building is a bit jarring, if not amusing.
The piece makes a statement about how art changes how we see, as Jeong-Hwa puts it: “People think you can only find Korean Art in Museums and Galleries” for “other artists”. The ambiguity and strength of his work rests in the tactile quality of the discarded object itself.
