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.
