Meet Graham, the only person designed to survive on our roads. Part interactive sculpture, part educational tool and ultimately a catalyst for conversation, Graham shows us how the human body would need to change to survive a car crash. Using decades of road safety data, medical research and creativity a trauma surgeon, a road safety engineer and a world-renowned artist re-imagined the human form to deliver evolution underpinned by evidence.
Around 186 300 children under 18 years die from road traffic crashes annually, and worldwide the total number of road traffic deaths remains unacceptably high at 1.24 million per year.
Graham was created by artist Patricia Piccinini, with help from a trauma surgeon and an accident research engineer, after she was commissioned to study the effects of road trauma on the human body. More info: Meetgraham.com
