Subject: The Worlds Most Expensive Windchime or a Honda F1 Race
The amazing display was created by Dutch artist
Paul Veroude. Each of the 3200 parts of the Formula 1 car are
suspended on fine wires to produce a 3D 'exploded diagram' that
allows race fans the chance to get closer than ever to the engineering
secrets of the world's most technically-advanced sport.
Honda first recognised Veroude's talents
two years ago, when Artwise Curators, who develop art projects with
the Honda team, came across a museum exhibition of his deconstructed
vehicles. Paul then got his first opportunity to get close up and
personal with a Honda Racing F1 car during a visit to Silverstone.
His passion for the sport and the Honda Racing F1 Team's engineering
expertise catalysed a very special work of art.
For Paul, the opportunity to work
with a top F1 team was the realisation of a life long ambition.
For the Honda Racing F1 Team, the collaboration provided a unique
opportunity to share the secrets of their success with fans.
Deputy Technical Director at Honda
Racing, Gary Savage, took a personal interest in the project: "After
meeting Paul we were keen to work with him to develop the installation
and showcase our work. We know from our own experience, when we
do drawings ourselves, exploded diagrams are very popular with people
- you can see how things go together. This is a combination of engineering
and sculpture - if you did it as a picture it would be very attractive
but as a 3D thing it is even more stunning. It shows off our car
in a very exciting and innovative way."
Honda's Head of Car Marketing, Jeff
Dodds says: "The first time we saw View Suspended, we knew
it would be perfect for the London Motor Show. It's creative, imaginative
and a must see for visitors to the Honda stand. I can't think of
a better expression of Honda's passion for F1 and engineering."
