Car Sculpture Made Out of Posing Humans

Austrialian-based artist Emma Hack makes awesome works of art using an unusual medium – human bodies. Don’t panic, all the humans are still alive and well. Hack is a diverse multimedia artist specializing in Skin Illustration, Photography and Sculpture. We love this sculpture of a crashed car entitled “Body Crash” that she made by positioning human models in various poses and painting them as a whole. We cannot help but be mesmerized by the visuals – trying to spot a limb is fun…go ahead, give it a whirl! This particular work of art required the participation of 17 people – each person played an integral role in the creation of this sculpture, and each model had to remain perfectly still while Hack painted the facade of his/her body that was showing in order to produce the illusion of a visual.

Pretty cool art, right? But wait, there’s more. Hack’s involvement in this sculpture is in support of the Motor Accident Commission of South Australia – a company whose goal it is to outline the dangers (and in this case, the consequences) of speeding.
