This super bright and colourful design highlights the importance of crash test dummies to help us understand and measure the body’s movement during a crash. The dummies simulate response to impacts, accelerations, deflections, forces and moments of inertia generated during a crash. The painted markings on the head and body help researchers see the movements more easily in their review of the slow-motion films. This dummy is designed to model the form, weight and articulation of a ‘Crash Test Bunny’.
With a background in textile design, Ali works from her studio on the Northumberland coastline. She is an environmental artist, whose work is continually inspired by life in the chaotic underwater world. With an emphasis on illustration she enjoys exploring the aesthetics of many marine species, translating the natural movements and patterns to build bold designs. Ali has her illustrations published in many books and regularly works with organisations around the world to highlight issues of pollution and overfishing. Obsessed with the ocean and the colour blue, her passion for conservation makes each design begin an interesting conversation.
