“We are honored to collaborate with the prestigious Geely company.
We wanted to create a dynamic piece, resolutely oriented towards the future. We’ve named it ‘Quantum Automobile.’
The mixed techniques (painting and collage) raises the question of entanglement and multiverse by asking which world are we going to create for 2100 and which car will we drive?
We wanted to blur the lines between organic structures and Design /Technology, the influences of the past in metamorphosis.
If we could travel time in the quantum reality, the car would not move. This is what the painting represents – a meta-car traveling in a de-materialized universe.”
