Babel Overlook - in metal


Although you might imagine - at a pinch - that this is an aerial view of some monstrous metallic Tower of Babel, it was in fact made from an image of part of the radiator grill of a 1961 Plymouth Fury convertible car, photographed at a museum in Wiltshire, UK. This particular car is the only one in the UK, and was imported from California in 1976.

This image has been selected for inclusion in the "Computer Art Image of the Month" feature by the Computer Arts Society Specialist Group of the British Computer Society for December 2011. Read the full article here.

I really enjoy the K-scopes book, autos and working on mechanical devices. In terms of the Babel Overlook image, I can tell you that no Plymouth Fury radiator grill has ever looked this great. It makes one wonder what other "radiators of the world" would look like. Keep up the good work and support for authors. The publication of new images on your website is a great idea.:)
