fabian oefner explodes views of classic sports cars
with the aid of fine needles and pieces of string, the ‘disintegrating’ series comes to life through thousands of individual photographs. the intricate scale models of a mercedes-benz 300 slr uhlenhaut coupé with gullwing doors, a sleek, black jaguar e-type, and a sensual ferrari 330 p4 that oefner creates, replicate every inner detail hidden within the hood. carefully strung and placed floating in space, singular photos are taken of each part, then blended together in post-production to create one unified image. ‘what looks like a car falling apart is in fact a moment in time that has been created artificially by blending hundreds of individual images together. there is a unique pleasure about artificially building a moment…freezing a moment in time is stupefying’, oefner explains.

I was invited by Daily Sushi to participate in this blog / art project. Artists drawing sushi, two great things right?
Anyway when preparing for this piece I discovered that the Japanese have an entire day devoted to eating freshwater eel in the summer time. Which sounds awesome! But I also learned that freshwater eel is redflagged by environmentalists, due to overfishing and shady farming techniques, not so awesome… Well it’s still ok if I just eat it once and a while right???
