One German parking official is either tirelessly efficient or the best performance artist on earth.

One of art's purposes is to show us something real and truthful about ourselves. One truth Austrian artist Erwin Wurm has found with his work is that German parking police are ruthless.

Wurm's sculpture—a distorted VW truck bending halfway up a wall—is illegally parked in a restricted zone. Well, it would be if it were a truck, but it's not a truck. It's a sculpture. In America, it's not against the law to be an eyesore, but the law seems to be a bit trickier in Karlsruhe, Germany.
