A Car, A Camera and the Artists




A photo mosaic made up of 650,000 street pictures, how cool is that?  The art is a collaborative pieces in which I have played a wee part.

I spent an hour driving the streetcar named Hyundai around a few of the 2,000 miles of central London streets as the installed camera was clicking away taking pictures.  I am one of many drivers who will zip around over the 50 drive of the route mapped out by the Ordnance Survey team.  My section will probably be just a couple of wee squares on that mosaic above.

However, it was lots of fun, but now let me tell you about the very cool car... it's the world's first commercially available  hydrogen fuel cell vehicle that emits nothing but water.  Really!  It doesn't look as weird as those little electric cars or as tiny.  Pretty nice to drive too (even if this one was left hand drive).

I'm all for anything that makes our air cleaner in London, imagine if all the vehicles on London's roads only emitted water!

Wow, what a great experience. I'd love to take it for a spin.

Very interesting. I want one of those cars! Lucky you! Now go get your Xmas shopping done! :)

As Sharon says, a memorable experience. I wonder why other car manufacturers dont go down the hydrogen cell route.

What an imaginative, inspired idea - and fun, too!

Oh my word, I just LOVE that mosaic! Fantastic to be part of it even if it's only a small part.

How unusual and beautiful this is, both the car's emissions and the mosaic. A great memory maker for you xx

What a brilliant opportunity. Let us all know when we can see those photos.The red line appears to cut right through my road, I don't know if we'll be on there or not.

That's great on all counts, the map, the water and of course the drive...
