Emma Hack's recent commission for the Motor Accident Commission of South Australia, has captured the attention of national and world press, having been viewed in excess of 220,000 times on YouTube. A simulated car crash was comprised of models painted by Emma and her team. The shoot took a total of 18 hours, using 17 men and women - each with up to five layers of paint applied to their bodies.

The campaign set out to change drivers’ attitudes to low level speeding by exposing the community problem that sits at the heart of it.
