Lamborghini Miura 'blown up' in the name of art

You might imagine Lamborghini, or anyone who owns one of its classic Miuras, would be very much against the idea of blowing one to smithereens, but that’s exactly what artist Fabian Oefner was allowed to do, creating an image described as “science meets art”.Oefner’s “Disintegrating X (Lamborghini Miura)” is certainly an eye-catching art work, as it appears to be a photo of a Miura being torn into tiny pieces by some mysterious, Marvel Universe-style magnetic force.

You might imagine Lamborghini, or anyone who owns one of its classic Miuras, would be very much against the idea of blowing one to smithereens, but thatu2019s exactly what artist Fabian Oefner was allowed to do, creating an image described as u201cscience meets artu201d. Oefneru2019s u201cDisintegrating X (Lamborghini Miura)u201d is certainly an eye-catching art work, as it appears to be a photo of a Miura being torn into tiny pieces by some mysterious, Marvel Universe-style magnetic force. In fact, it has been created, painstakingly, by combining thousands of shots depicting every single component of a Miura, from body shell to tiny screws, all perfectly positioned, and Photoshopped, to create the illusion of an exploding car. Thank goodness itu2019s only an illusion. Fabian Oefner is a Swiss artist who u201cexamines our perception of time and reality through hyper-detailed sculptures and photographsu201d. His previous u201cDisintegratingu201d photos had all been done using scale models, but in this case a friend of his owned a Miura and was having it pulled down to be restored, so he invited Oefner to come into the workshop and photograph every single part of the legendary Lamborghini, in situ. u201cWith a scale model youu2019re in your studio, itu2019s a quiet place you can do what you like and itu2019s a very soothing process,u201d Oefner explains. u201cWith the real car, you have the constant noise, plus you have people working beside you, and it was 44 degrees in the workshop, it smelled of petrol in the air, itu2019s just way more tangible when you do it with the real thing.u201d While it might sound like hard work, Oefner actually found it a genuinely moving, and bonding, experience. u201cThat car becomes something really special to you, because at the end of the process you know every single detail, Itu2019s more like a person,u201d he says. u201cEvery time I see the car itu2019s like, u2018Oh, I know you.u2019u201d Yes, I know you, I blew you to bits. Nice one, Fabian. Cool or corny? Tell us what you think of Fabianu0027s work in the comments below.
