Ian Cook is a Birmingham-based artist who paints using radio controlled cars, car tyres and toy car wheels. This piece was created at the UK round of the LeMans Series, the ‘Silverstone 1000km’ held at Silverstone Race Circuit, Northampton, UK.

Created on Sunday 11th September 2011, I shot the entire creation of the artwork over around 6 hours, and managed to squeeze it into this 5 minute video! The setup was one single static camera recording the whole thing, and I took various close-ups with a second camera. The music is ‘The Signal’ by BertyCox, which I came across via Jamendo, an excellent resource for free, legal and unlimited music published under Creative Commons licenses.

About Emma Puente

I am a freelance artist mainly working with digital video, regularly managing video productions for both organisations and individuals and specialising in the documentation of arts events, exhibitions and performances and interviews, as well as creating my own films. In my own work, I like to examine the poetry in the commonplace, the beauty that goes unnoticed, and the ‘what if?’ I work with a variety of technologies ranging from high definition broadcast suites to low-cost mobile devices. Clients and employers have included British Library Labs, PQA, NCS The Challenge, Kings College London, Thinktank Science Museum and AL Control Laboratories. I am an independent Arts Award Advisor (trained to Gold level) and have worked with numerous community arts organisations in the UK, sharing my skills with young people interested in media production and the creative industries. I have produced and delivered hundreds of video projects, technology-based workshops and public art events. I also offer services such as media conversion, image editing and occasionally design/illustration work. I have my own equipment and car, and can multi-task like a fiend.
