BMW interactive kinetic sculpture.Called GINA,the exhibit is a prototype car with flexible fabric skin instead of traditional rigid metal or fibreglass body.The car is engineered to be able to morph,changing its shape.The changes can only be made within fairly limited physical parameters.It is a framework under the flexible skin that is able to move,but with such precision engineering in car design,even the most subtle changes in a plane or line can have radical aesthetic or aerodynamic affect.
