Brit art student creates invisible car!May 2nd, 2009 - 5:20 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 2 (ANI): Ever wished your car turned invisible after being caught jumping the red light? Well, an art student in the UK has actually found a way to make her four-wheel vehicle invisible.
Sara Watson, of the University of Central Lancashire, spray-painted a battered Skoda Fabia to match the car park and entrance to her art studio.
And the unique work, created as part of her drawing and image-making course at the university, looks as if the car is see through.
The 22-year-old student had been given the car from a breakers yard, and then she worked for three weeks to ensure that it camouflaged perfectly with its surroundings.
“I was experimenting with the whole concept of illusion but needed something a bit more physical to make a real impact,” The Telegraph quoted Watson, who is from Ashton under Lyne, as saying.
She added: “People have been stopping in the street to look and coming up and almost bumping into it, so it’s had the desired effect.”
Steve Jackson, owner of Recycling Lives, the firm that gave Miss Watson the car, said: “When I first saw the photos I was convinced it was something which had been done on the computer, but when you look more closely you see the effort and attention to detail she has put into it. It is just amazing.” (ANI)
