Recycling Cars: A Student Designs an Invisible Car

Importance of Innovation

Creativity is at the heart of every innovation. Anything new that springs up in this world is a result of a genius mind working its creativity and magic and bringing to life something which is new and different. Thinking from scratch is what makes innovation strenuous and sturdy. Not everyone is capable of being smart enough to invent or create an idea from scratch. A great and wild imagination is required to come up with as much as an idea. To make that idea into reality, one needs to go all the way. Determination, commitment and patience is integral to making an idea come to life. Perseverance is an art that pays off in a long time, but is surely worth the wait.  This is exactly what happened with the young artist who was smart enough to think out of the box and brave enough to try and make her imagination turn into reality.

The ‘Invisible Car’ Work of the Student

The question that begs a reply is as to what would you do if you are a young artist with a Skoda Fabia? The right answer is that you will make it an invisible car! Surprised much? Well, this is exactly what the young student did with her creativity. When the University of Central Lancashire’s art student, Sara Watson, found herself in possession of an old Junker from a local recycling company, she decided to turn it into an incredible piece of environmental art. By painting the vehicle to match the parking lot in front of her art studio’s entrance, she created a wonderful and mind-bending optical illusion that acts as a call to recycle.

The Message

Recycling is a phenomenon that everyone is aware of yet only a few implement it. The young student used the resources from the recycling company, and her skills and mindset to set forth a message across about how important recycling is, especially of the vehicles that are dumped as trash.

The Skoda Fabia came from the local recycling company, Recycling Lives. To create her trompe l’oeil effect Sara set to work for three weeks with good-old fashioned spray paint and a ton of creativity. Appropriately enough, the car will now be used to advertise the same recycling company that donated it.

The Reason

Most cars tend to disappear into landfills, or ideally, get recycled. We have to say that what Sara’s project takes, is a slightly more fun approach. Sara stated, “I was experimenting with the whole concept of illusion but needed something a bit more physical to make a real impact.” She went on to say, “People have been stopping in the street to look and coming up and almost bumping into it, so it’s had the desired effect.”

The Effect

The invisible car has been a great attraction for people passing by. It helps to attract people and then get the message across which is a great stunt by the recycling company. The skills of the student and her ambition made it possible to think out of the box and come up with something unique; something that catches the eye and leaves a mark on the mind.
