The Slowest High-Speed Images Of Exploding Cars Ever Captured (VIDEO)

Swiss visual artist Fabian Oefner likes to merge the worlds of art and science. He creates stunning images that capture events invisible to a normal human eye and has explored forces such as centrifugal forces, sound waves, fire and even magnetic ferrofluids (google it) to expose the hidden beauty of science.

Oefner’s latest project titled ‘Disintegrating and Hatch’ looks at the relationship between time, space and the fascinating complexity of the automobile.  Aka disintegrating racing cars!

Enjoy the stunning images below and ‘the making of’ video. All, very high brow for carhoots!

What you see in these images, is a moment that never existed in real life,” says Oefner. ”There is a unique pleasure about artificially building a moment… Freezing a moment in time is stupefying.
