Williams collaborated with Blueshift GP to create a stunning new collection of artworks, inspired by aerodynamic images from Williams. The exhibition’s launch was at the Ransom Gallery in London, where it will remain till the end of March.
The artworks combine engineering expertise and art to create this truly unique and stunning collection. The inspiration for them were previously confidential imagery from Williams’ computational fluid dynamic (CFD) designs.
The artworks feature CFD images from the Williams FW35 and before
They detail simulation of the airflow around a car, while Blueshift GP’s input turned them into a collection of beautiful images. The inspirational imagery was never publicly seen before.
