‘Braincar’ is a mobile sculpture created by rotterdam artist Olaf Mooij, featuring a large brain-like extrusion on the back of a modified used car. By day, the vehicle captures and stores images and video from its travels. By night, this footage is remixed, projected from within the brain sculpture and visible from the outside.
Mooij’s body of work involves the alteration of motor vehicles, in pieces that express the nearly psychological connection between drivers and their cars, or that convert vehicles into a kind of mobile sculpture architecture, as in ‘DJ mobile’ or the sofa-like ‘chesterfield car’. With ‘Braincar’, Mooij questioned what it would be like if instead the car itself could experience with a kind of consciousness its own passage through spacetime. via
