Meet Graham! He is a new super human who is built by Melbourne sculptor Patricia Piccinini as a part of Victorian Government’s car safety program. This super human is capable of surviving any major car accident. Patricia says that the damage caused to the human body by accident is inevitable. Even car speeds as low as 25-30 kilometres per hour can cause significant brain damage as it can damage the skull and the neck. Graham, however, can withstand such injuries.
Graham’s body has an inflated head, massive chest. It does not have a neck to minimise injuries caused by car accidents.
Patricia Piccinini created Graham as a part of Victorian road safety program.
Graham has an extremely massive chest which provides the same protection to rib cage as air bags.
Piccinni built the super human with assistance from trauma surgeon Christian Kenfield and safety engineer David Logan.
Graham is capable of surviving any major/high-speed car crash.
The purpose behind sculpting Graham is to show how vulnerable human body is during car accidents.
