Wooden Porsche 911 is Art
text size: A- A+
As we were saying, a lot of people beg to differ. This is why the automotive world needs artists who create a shape similar to one of a certain vehicle using special craftsmanship. Their creations are the argument that allows cars to be considered works of art by a much wider public.
Alexander Gedda is one of these artists who likes to separate the concepts of automobile and transportation. The designer has worked for several months to create a Porsche 911 replica using thousands of toy building blocks, autoblog.it reports. The vehicle is a representation of the 997 generation 911 (Turbo model?).
Over 6,500 wooden blocks have been used to bring the replica to life - in case you're curious, placing the blocks end to end would create a 1,500 meters line of wood. The wooden 911 also features a set of Porsche 911 997 pre-facelift taillights and a giant zipper that runs along it. The later has been fitted to offer the (more or less metaphorical) possibility to enter the vehicle.
The replica, which measures 14 feet in length, has been commissioned by a Porsche dealer located in Milan, Italy. The work of art will be included in the dealer’s historic archive.
So, what’s your opinion: is the real 911 Turbo a work of art or just a cold-hearted, hot-performance German supercar?
