Atlantic Station Car cut-outs

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

An activity that will be included in the Atlantic Station Parking Garage memorabilia project is a set of paper cars to be cut out, folded and taped together.  Because we have chosen to situate our work in a late 1950’s/early 1960’s aesthetic, I have found pictures of several vehicles that one might have seen at that time, and using Photoshop we will transform these into three-dimensional paper models.

Here is a draft using pictures of a 1963 Studebaker Avanti.  The body design for this vehicle was ahead of its time, and only about 800 of these were made.

The other vehicles include a 1957 Chevrolet truck, a 1957 Chrysler New Yorker, a 1960 Chevrolet Impala and a 1962 Ford Falcon.

Here are revised postcard designs, including a few more “adult” themed cards inspired by Thomas’s designs for the ashtrays.

Anna Grimshaw at Emory Nov 18 @ 7:30

Of course, I won’t be able to make it but Anna Grimshaw is speaking at Emory – not sure that was running through the lists. Not completely our digital media field – more anthropology – but still maybe of interest.
