a million little pieces

I work with cars and am fascinated by all these tiny parts!

whoa!There’s something truly appealing about seeing every last little piece of a car deconstructed and laid out neatly. Automobiles are fascinating machines, with tons of tiny pieces that do unexpected things, with each part serving a purpose. And knowing that every functional part of a car is the result of a century of hard work and refinement is kind of awe-inspiring. via

These cars were carefully deconstructed and laid out for the sake of art. Seeing every bit that makes a car tick is like taking a look inside a secret world. Just like any other complex machine, cars are full of parts both small and large that all work together to make the overall functions go exactly the way they should – and it’s oddly poetic, in a mechanical sort of way.

These exploded views take an object that’s ever-present in our everyday lives and give it an entirely new (to most of us) spin. This is truly art for the geek heart. It kind of makes us wonder what everything else would look like in detailed exploded view. Now where are our screwdrivers?

  1. Hi Tiffany, I like these, especially the suspended one.

    As a person who does a lot of driving, I think that any number of these parts have been laid out underneath my car — although not quite as elegantly as depicted here. 🙂

    It is pretty amazing though, how interconnected each piece and system must be in order for complicated machines, like these cars, to operate. I suspect that the same can be said for the most complicated creations of all — people. Ray

  2. Yeah, I’m with Ray on that one. I can’t help but think that this is the same as figuring out how humans think, function, and behave. Neat post! And I love the title. You must be extremely intelligent 😉
