Meet Graham: Only Human Designed to Survive a Car Crash
  • The Grotesque Sculpture known as Graham can Survive a Car Crash

Scientists have created a grotesque life-like sculpture known as Graham that can survive a car crash.

In order to improve your chances of surviving a car accident, it would be ideal to have a very thick sternum equipped with air bags that cushion the sudden impact.

Also it would help to have your face flattened and possess a big cranium. Besides this, fat skin would be a boon and as for the knees, they ought to be movable in every direction possible. 

There is currently only one such entity that fulfills all these criteria. That is none other than Graham. Graham is an interactive, full-scale model sculpture that has a monstrous, yet human look. He is part of a road safety program started by the Transport Accident Commission of Victoria, Australia.

The artist Patricia Piccinini formed this semi-human from silicone and human hair. It is a great work of art and it connects with the onlookers in any demonstration workshop. The dialogue on car accidents are such that Graham serves as an ice breaker in their midst. 

Instead of directly telling the audience what to think regarding safety precautions, Graham serves as a tool of the trade that facilitates the process like no other entity.

This monster is a source of graphic results that portray to the onlookers how vulnerable the human body is to a full-impact car crash.

The physical equations that reign supreme on the road and that are responsible for accidents can be understood with alacrity thanks to a gander or two at what happens to Graham under test runs.

The human body has its unique methods of responding to a car crash. To make the human body resistant to car crashes is the ultimate goal. 

Graham’s feet are like two hooves. They are multi-directional to boot. The plan behind building Graham began a year ago. It took six months for the creator of this human sculpture to fully make him in his grotesque wholeness. The total cost amounted to $149,000.

The authorities are showing a great deal of confidence in this car crash model. They know it will pay off in the final analysis. The fake human has started the ball rolling regarding safety while on the road. One thing which is for sure and is very obvious is that he is going to survive every and any car crash since he is not alive in the first place.
