Cars as Art...

Futurism artist Luigi Russolo, painted “Dynamism of an Automobile” in 1913, foreseeing automobile wind tunnel testing.

Digital graphic artist Jim Campbell a moving vehicle for a specific period of time, then used custom hardware to average the multiple frames into one single image. The result is a blurring effect that gives the appearance of motion. For Dynamism of an Automobile (after Luigi Russolo) 2003, the artist averaged two minutes of video taken traveling down the freeway. The images were printed with archival inkjet ink prints on cotton rag paper.
