Tales of Auto Elasticity
Inspired by Californian road trips along endless highways through deserted baron lands.
Auto aerobics began life as a tiny idea for a project about New York. Walking through Brooklyn on a winters evening is a truly memorable experience which motivated me to build a digital 3D model that captured the various details and textures of this location. The Pontiac automobile was initially destined to be a prop parked on the sidewalk; however, I later decided to make it a parallel subject of the series and started abstracting the cars forms by hollowing out the vehicles core, stretching the proportions and experimenting with multiples which over time began to look extraordinary. – Chris Labrooy
The animation, titled ‘cut & shut’, continues labrooy’s ongoing interest in automobiles, following his ”auto elasticity” series of twisted and tangled cars in tokyo, and his ”porsches parked in surreal scenarios around palm springs”.
Citroen C3 Genealogy/A 3D sculpture that explores the genealogy of the new Citroen C3 car. Cars featured include the 2CV, Visa, AX, Saxo, C3 gen 1, C3 gen 2 and of course, the new Citroen C3.
Chris Labrooy’s has exhibited at the design museum in London and been featured in various publications, exploring CGI as a creative medium in itself which he could subvert and twist familiar everyday things into new typographic and sculptural form at the intersection between typography, architecture, product design and visual art.
