What constitutes a piece of art? Is it a permanent place in a museum or an art gallery? Is it the expression and process of an artist, in the case of certain types of modern art? Or is it really just the way a man-made object makes another person feel? No matter how you define art, architect Holger Schubert understands what art is to him, and has set out to celebrate that one piece of mechanical art in a space where he can most appreciate it.
Petrolicious takes us inside the office/garage/gallery that Schubert has created for his Ferrari 512 BBi, a car that defines the archetypal Ferrari of the era; wedge like, low slung, and beautiful. Schubert describes his car as art, and the gallery-like space, a blank canvas for his art. The video itself is a few years old, but is timeless in the way it describes and portrays the subject, much like the car and the architecture.
For those fortunate enough to have the means to ponder what it would be like to have one of these historic mechanical art on wheels, you can also check out this pristine example by clicking here.
