Shaping Air: the CLA as a Sculpture | Arts | mb! by Mercedes-Benz

Artist Yasuaki Onishi is well known for his "Reverse of Volume" artwork in his homeland of Japan and abroad in the USA and Europe. If you follow the link above you can see a video of him creating a negative sculpture of the Mercedes Benz CLA. Onishi uses fishing wire hung above the car and then drizzles hot glue over the wire to create long glue drips which rest atop the car. When the car is removed all that remains is a plastic sheet and the glue drops which create a negative sculpture of the CLA. Onishi also comments on the beauty of the shape of the CLA, and honestly I agree with him. He says, "The CLA has something organic about it, a natural, aerodynamic shape that allows it to offer the air little resistance." The video gives a beautiful look at the car from an artistic perspective. Definitely worth a watch.
