Well, that visual is sure unsettling. Introducing our homeboy Graham. To survive on our roads, you’d need to look something like him.
Graham is the TAC’s latest road safety project, highlighting how vulnerable the human body is to the forces involved in transport accidents.
The TAC collaborated with leading trauma surgeon Christian Kenfield, crash investigator expert David Logan and world-renowned artist Patricia Piccinini, to produce Graham – an interactive, lifelike interactive sculpture demonstrating human vulnerability.
Studies show the human body can only cope with impact speeds people can reach on their own, unassisted by vehicles. Graham has been designed with bodily features that might be present in humans if they had evolved to withstand the forces involved in crashes.
Graham may survive on the road but he would be the worst wingman ever. You definitely won’t have any luck at the bar rolling with mush face. Watch the video below.
