Accident with red car

Accident with red car

2010 | HD Video | 2'24" 
 

In this video, showed at the RijksakademieOpen 2010, an archetypical representation of a car is attached to the side of a Fiat Panda. This representation is however crashed in a cartoonish manner, determining that the car behind it inevatibly has to crash as well. Something that eventually happens in the video. Thereby creating a video where the otherwise unexpected is expected and where an accident becomes not accidental at all.
