we are familiar with ‘exploded view’ of vehicle in illustration for prints, but what about an ‘exploded view’ in real life? well, this was what exactly Dutch artist Paul Veroude has done to a Mercedes GP Petronas F1 car in his installation art, entitled “View Suspended II.” this particular Mercedes GP Petronas F1 was deconstructed and its 3,200 components hung in an exploded view display at Mercedes-Benz World exhibition in Surrey, UK. it is indeed a sight to behold, especially to all racing fans (F1 fans in particular). Veroude is no stranger to such suspended art form, having created a similar work on the Honda F1 car in 2005 which had graced public exhibition in Shanghai (2005) and the British International Motor Show (2006).
