Flying Cars by Sylvain Viau
- Caroline Kurze
French artist Sylvain Viau created the ‘Flying Cars’ photo series. He digitally altered photographs of several vintage cars, experimenting with the futuristic idea of hovering cars. The scenic seascape of Cherbourg, France serves as a bright and alluring backdrop for the realistic snapshots. The tires from each vehicle have been cropped out and filled in with the contour of the car’s exterior body as a shadow underneath creates the illusion of the car floating above the ground. Juxtaposing older model vintage cars with the futuristic concept of the hovercar, Sylvain Viau’s ‘Flying Cars’ provide an alternative way to look at the future.
