the steamroller as artist

art is the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way to affect the senses or emotions. It encompasses a diverse range of human activities, creations, and modes of expression, including music, literature, film, sculpture, and paintings. The meaning of art is explored in a branch of philosophy known as aesthetics.
a steamroller (or steam roller) is a form of road roller - a type of heavy construction machinery used for leveling surfaces, such as roads or airfields - that is powered by a steam engine. The leveling / flattening action is achieved through a combination of the size and weight of the vehicle and the rolls: the smooth wheels and the large cylinder or drum fitted in place of treaded road wheels.
