with the help of instagram’s layout application, lisbon-based copywriter josé quintela turns ordinary parked vehicles into surreal tiny cars. while strolling through the city streets, quintela collects photos of a wide variety of cruisers ranging in shape, size and model, which he finds parked in front of both decorative and simple building façades. then, using the layout app provided by instagram — a program which allows users creative control over the style and format of their photos — quintela mirrors the image of the car at its middle, condensing it into a miniature vehicle. while the recreated automobiles lose their drivability and functionality as they teeter on a single wheel, their humorous shapes and quirky configurations form amusing and bizarre spectacles on the streets of lisbon.
