Light and Oil Drawings
In cooperation with Intersection Magazine Germany and Smart
It's pretty much fun, bringing together an electric vehicle, a petrol car and a machine to produce large scale artworks and a great photo spread for the Intersection Magazine.
The biggest difference between the electric and the "normal" Smart is surely its engine and the sound it makes. So I've decided to create the artwork on the base of the audio data. They were recorded while driving along certain routes in Berlin like the Allee der Kosmonauten or Unter den Linden.
The sound of the combustion motor has been drawn with its engine oil on canvas and the sound of the electric engine has been drawn with the vehicles backlight on long exposure photos. The frequencies and level information define the angles, lengths and colours.
The whole project has been published in the spring issue of the Intersection Magazine Germany and the artworks have been exhibited at the Smart Urban Stage in Berlin.
The idea was developed with the Intersection Magazine and my brother Sven. Many thanks to him, to the Intersection Magazine for realising this, Jan for the photos, Ulrich for the video and Smart for their support.
