2017 BMW M6 GT3 Art Car accompanies the viewer in a parallel universe
The light draws shapes, create suggestions and accompanies the viewer on a journey through time. Such as in a parallel universe. “For me, the light represents the thoughts.” explains the artist. “Because the speed of thoughts cannot be measured. The 2017 BMW M6 GT3 Art Car casts doubt on the existence of boundaries of the human mind. We are entering a new era. Where the mind directly controls the objects and where thoughts can be transferred. As unmanned operations and artificial intelligence. What attitudes and temperaments are often the key to open the door to the new era?” So, the work of Cao Fei is also a reflection of the speed of change in China, the tradition and the future.
