Invited to participate in "Drive in" Cologne. 12 artists/designers were given a car and asked to respond to the concept of the car today. Kinetic installation built inside a 'crashing' BMW 3 series.
We took the idea of calculated measurements from crash tests and applied it to an animated real vehicle. Participants would enter a completely blacked out car and be taken through a head on collision. The seats moved, the lights flashed, a soundtrack of detailed technical changes informed, building up to a high pitched, horn blasting and finally smoke pouring out of the bonnet.
