Dismantled cars

What you see is "disassembled" and removed for a microsecond time is the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR released in 1954, but in fact it carefully and painstakingly created an artificial time artist and photographer Fabian Oefner.

The outline Fabian can see some parts of the car. He examines the model of car in installments; from the body shell until tiny screws. Each car contains hundreds of parts.

1. Oefner puts each piece individually and sequentially using fine needles.

2. After carefully chosen angle for each frame and create the right lighting, he photographs components.

3. It takes thousands of photos to get a single image from a series.

4. Individual pictures then mix together in the layout in a special program to create one single image. Frame with wheels, acting as a guide, obtained after each part of the photo was processed in Photoshop, cut and pasted into the final image.


6. "This is probably" the most retarded "image ever obtained in the frame. It took almost two months to create an image that looks as if it was captured in a fraction of a second. The whole dismantling itself took more than a day for each car because of the complexity of models. But it is - something like stuff for the boys. I get great pleasure while to understand, revealing something disassembling it, almost like peeling. " - Fabian Oefner.


8. "What you see in these pictures - this is a moment that never existed in real life. What looks like a car that is falling apart, is actually a point in time that has been created artificially by combining hundreds of individual images. There is a unique pleasure to artificially build this very moment ... Freezing point in time - stupefying "- Fabian Oefner.

9. Limited series of 25 images of photographs (size 120 cm x 70 cm) are available through the MB & F MAD Gallery. Located in Geneva, Switzerland, MB & F MAD Gallery is a place of kinetic art, where there is clock machinery and mechanical art devices.
