The longstanding interest of the Danish artist Olafur Eliasson in the connection between natural phenomena and industrial technology is reflected in his discourse with the BMW H2R racing car. In this forward-looking car, one that is powered by hydrogen, the features of extreme speed and environmental friendliness are no longer diametrically opposed to each other. The presentation of the 16th BMW Art Car, for which Eliasson replaced the outer covering of the H2R prototype with a fragile layering of ice, is to be premiered in Munich.
