with the aid of fine needles and pieces of string, the ‘disintegrating’ series comes to life through thousands of individual photographs. the intricate scale models of a mercedes-benz 300 slr uhlenhaut coupé with gullwing doors, a sleek, black jaguar e-type, and a sensual ferrari 330 p4 that oefner creates, replicate every inner detail hidden within the hood. carefully strung and placed floating in space, singular photos are taken of each part, then blended together in post-production to create one unified image. ‘what looks like a car falling apart is in fact a moment in time that has been created artificially by blending hundreds of individual images together. there is a unique pleasure about artificially building a moment…freezing a moment in time is stupefying’, oefner explains.
