#16 Olafur Eliasson:
BMW H2R (2007).
Olafur Eliasson transformed a BMW H2R into a work of art reflecting themes of mobility, temporality, renewable energies and the relationship between car production and global warming.
Eliasson removed the outer covering of the prototype and replaced it with a skin of two reflecting layers of superimposed metal, before covering it with fragile layers of ice.
"By bringing together art, design, social and environmental issues, I hope to contribute to a different way of thinking-feeling-experiencing cars and seeing them in relation to the time and space in which we live."
