The sculpture is the result of a road accident in Hackney London in May 2009 — a car crashed into the steel railings; artist Michael Croft doesn’t know what happened, but says he isn’t sure he wants to. The work is about life, death, speed, nihilism, fate, technology.

He got the rails mirror-polished and they are now installed at Nervosi Gallery in London. The gallery is part of an art/design studio complex in London called Annexed Industry.
