How cool is this?

From his website:

With this edition of Alphabet Truck, Eric Tabuchi completes a work
representing several thousands of kilometers traversed over these
past four years. The missing link between The back of trucks passed
while driving from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara by John Baldessari
and Auchan, the letters of Claude Closky, Eric Tabuchi pushes the
burlesque or compulsive logic of his piece in an almost derisory
search for what could constitute its Danish and Japanese origins.
Through language (Alphabet) and displacement (Trucks), Alphabet Truck
therefore questions, beyond its formal aspects and references, the
notions of membership, identity and coeducation.
