Art student makes car vanish

I love stories like this - it reaffirms one's faith in youth:

Quote:

A design student made a battered old Skoda "disappear" by painting it to merge with the surrounding car park.

Sara Watson, who is studying drawing at the University of Central Lancashire (Uclan), took three weeks to transform the car's appearance.

Now that is cool.   Thanks for posting this Unionist.

Nice!

That reminds me of the work of "Banksy".  Excellent stuff.

 

Somewhat related, Daily Planet featured a kid who came up with the bright idea of stitching twine on his goal pads and blocker.  Seems forwards visually key on twine in the split second decision to aim and shoot.   Although the evidence is annecdotal, it seems to confuse the forwards.  And the kid had two consecutive shutouts.

If it catches on in the bigs, I predict it will work for a while, until forwards learn to key on something else.

I wonder if Sara had a hand in Chrysler's vanishing act...

ETA: Here are [url=two">http://www.lep.co.uk/EditorialGallery.aspx?ArticleID=5218648&SectionID=5... different views[/url] of Sara's Skoda, one in sync with the background, the other out of sync.

Now that's talent! I admire her vision. Even the non blended car is amazing
