Teh Cloak of Invisibility is here! {Art trumps Science}


Art student's car vanishing act

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.

She created the illusion in the car park outside her studio at Uclan's Hanover Building in Preston.

The car is now being used for advertising by the local recycling firm that donated the vehicle.

But idiotic to suggest that art conflicts with science.


EDIT: Wonder what it looks like from *other* angles? :rofl:

5. It would be funny to see that car driving down the street.
This is the part I don't get: The car is now being used for advertising by the local recycling firm that donated the vehicle.
How?

6. It's not "invisible" unless it's parked
right there, and the photographer is standing right there.

I'd love to see what it looks like from another angle... Pretty neat trick!

8. Excellent!
It helps if the car has as few curved surfaces as possible. But still a hell of a lot of work.

Inverse art.
