Lovely loop: Lotus sculpture at Goodwood, England by Gerry Judah.
Text: Detail Daily
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is the UK's largest car culture event. But the “petrol heads” do not have it all their own way as there is usually an infiltration of artistic culture. This year, a 28 metre tall sculptural piece designed, by Gerry Judah provided, the respite from things mechanical.
Each year, one car manufacturer is featured. This year it was Lotus who sponsored the sculpture. The spectacular piece incorporates six historic Lotus racing cars on a stylized infinity loop. Inspired by an electric toy racing car game, the artist succeeded in taking many of the festival visitors back to their youth for a fleeting moment.
