I started this project by buying an RC Car at the Five Below store on 6 ave. in Midtown. My friend was visiting New York and we happened to walk inside randomly. I bought the RC car and a Nerds Rope.
I dismantled the body and took the motor that connected to the rear wheels off the frame. The car is RWD and I left the front wheels on the car.
I decided to go full junk shelf materials salvaging for the rest of the project and found some L shaped sheet metal to mount the frame onto a piece of plywood.
I had asked Julia to make Matt and I fingers as he and I were going to work together and make a nose picker tool, but alas finals tore us apart.
I nibbled the sheet metal to fit around the motor and then onto the frame of the body. I rotated the motor 90degrees and drilled a hole for the shorter end to poke through. I used long screws and put hot glue on the ends that poked through the second piece of plywood to act as makeshift plywood.
I then put the original wheel back on the axle that poked through as it had the proper thread and hot glued Julia’s finger to it.
Overall I’m actually really happy with what this ended up becoming.
I thought the name of the painting was '“The Creation of Man” but apparently its actually “The Creation of Adam”.
