Parts found at junkyards, refined Methane rated at 2000PSI, Honda engine converted carburetor, steel, plumbing, remote control and various hardware parts.
The methane-powered vehicles were originally created for the landmark exhibition, ‘Fresh Kills: Artists Respond to the Closure of the Staten Island Landfill’, commemorating the closing of what was for decades the world’s largest landfill. As the height of operation, Freshkills landfill was said to have produced 2% of the world’s methane gas. Kahrl built the remote controlled vehicles from parts found in junkyards and powered them by methane or landfill gas.
