Exploded Exotic Cars by Fabian Oefner.
The series is called Disintegrating, and each image is a composition of individual images taken over the space of weeks. For Oefner the series is about inventing time. While it may appear to be a car exploding in an instant, it is in fact an invention, a moment that never existed in real life.
“The images could be called the slowest high speed images ever captured. It took almost three weeks to create an image, that looks as if it was captured in a fraction of a second.”
Todd McLellan meets Ferris Bueller’s friend Cameron? For his contribution to the “exploded object” genre of photography, Fabian Oefner ratchets up the intensity by seemingly having taken a ratchet to exotic cars, disassembling them piece by piece.
The Swiss artist’s Disintegrating series features some of the most beloved classic car models–a Ferrari 250 GTO, a Gullwing Benz, a Jag E-type–and shows you what they’re made of, deconstructing those beautiful forms to float the mechanicals out into space.
Fabian Oefner (born 1984, Switzerland) is a curious investigator, photographer and artist, whose work moves between the fields of art and science. His images capture in unique and imaginative ways natural phenomena that appear in our daily lives, such as sound waves, centripetal forces, iridescence, or the unique properties of magnetic ferroliquids. His exploration of the unseen and poetic facets of the natural world is an invitation, as he says, “to stop for a moment and appreciate the magic that constantly surrounds us.”
