The Art of Traveling in Pickup Trucks

Photographer Alejandro Cartagena stood looking down from a bridge in northern Mexico to take these unique images. He managed to capture snapshots of the daily commutes of Mexican workers as they lay down and sit in pickup trucks. I think these images are really quite special, as it’s not something that most people see. There’s so much information that can be gleaned just from these non-standard views of ‘ordinary’ hard-working people.

iPhone Diorama

iPhone Diorama is a stunningly-creative short video by Mike Ko, a student from California, Los Angeles. When I say short, I mean short, so be sure to watch the video after the screenshots. What’s it about? Well, in a nut-shell, pink and green houses pop up out of an iPhone and cars ride down the road. It sounds simple, but it took Mike three months to complete. It’s intricate, well-executed and visually quite amazing. It has a great soundtrack, too…

Cutting-Edge Audi OLED Car

I don’t feature cars that much here on Design Soak, but this car is well worth a mention. It’s not just because this Audi is a nice car, but because its lights are actually part of the bodywork. They are made of OLED technology, which means that any cool-looking light configuration is possible, and covers the entire length of the vehicle. Watch the video straight after to screenshots below to see what I mean…

These clever car atlas rainbow photos are by artist David T.Waller. He used 2500 toy cars to create this stunning circular rainbow. They are arranged by colour to form a really clever piece of art. I don’t know where all the cars came from, but someone’s had quite a collection going on!
