Washed Up Car-Go

Hey guys!! So last Saturday after we’d been to the Hull Minster Making and Hanse Day Events, we went over to the Deep which is Hull’s very own Aquarium and we went over to look at the cars in the car park that are part of the ‘Washed Up Car-Go’ event. The ‘Washed Up Car-Go event is basically 3 ordinary looking cars in the Deep car park filled with sand, rocks and anything that’s to do with the beach or the sea. The cars play quite romantic music and display a film on a screen and ‘Washed Up Car-Go’ actually touches on issues such as pollution, consumeration and the tradition of marine art all through the films and plastic objects inside the cars. In today’s blog post, I’m going to be describing ‘Washed Up Car-Go’ to you all and giving you my opinion on it.

‘Washed Up Car-Go’ was fascinating. The idea of having a car filled with sand, rocks and plastic objects such as toy sea creatures which played a film on a little screen in the car which linked all of these things into big issues such as pollution is genius. Plus, this is another event which links in with Hull’s fishing heritage and it was honestly an amazing piece of art work. I have no idea how the artist Chris Dobrowolski managed to get all of the sand and rocks in the car to be level with each other or how he got the plastic objects in the car to look so neat when he definitely wouldn’t have been able to have the doors of the car open and maybe not even the windows!! I’m really glad I got the opportunity to see ‘Washed Up Car-Go’ because it was so unique and fascinating and something I may not get to see again in my life!!

I would rate this event 10 out of 10 stars because I can’t find anything to fault about it!! It was truly an amazing event and piece of art work and I really enjoyed going to see it!!

Thank you for reading this blog post!! What’s your favourite thing about beaches? Let me know in the comments!! There will be another blog post up next week but until then bye for now!!

  1. Hi Amelia , thank you for your review, I’m so sorry I only just found it today on the last weekend the cars will be in show. Its always encouraging to have positive feedback, sometimes when you walk away from a piece of work like this you are never sure if anyone has ever noticed it. There is a film on the internet that shows the cars being built. It shatters the illusion of how the beaches were made. I will send you the link
