Hey hey there bloggers! Wondering about the picture above? Well fortunatelly this was no real accident. It’s actually an sculture that was shown on February 2008 and traveled to different art fairs. The explanation to this piece of work is quite interesting.

We are used to watch a lot of this car collisions in movies. Why aren’t we satisfied about it? Well this time the artist tried to reproduce the quick, invisible motion into a slow, invisible to the eye motion. The cars were arranged to crash about three feet into each other for a lapse of 6 days. This sculpture allows people to watch on different angles an event that would usually be so quick, it would be invisible to the naked human eye.

Well, next up are 2 videos which have different angles of the same car collision. 6 days in a couple of seconds. It’s still slower than an actuall car collision. Enjoy.
