TAC’s interactive sculpture Graham has been designed with stronger ribs to give him better protection in a crash.

Graham is the collaboration between the TAC, leading trauma surgeon Christian Kenfield, crash investigator expert David Logan and world-renowned artist Patricia Piccinini.
His chest is large and barrel-like to withstand greater impacts. However, his torso is more airbag-like than armour-like. Sacks that do a similar job to that of an airbag, have been placed between each of Graham’s ribs. On impact these airbags absorb the impact force and reduce his forward momentum. The airbags provide an inbuilt added layer of protection for the heart and other vital organs.
