As it turn out, after loosing such a memorable keepsake, he then transformed as an artist and recreate his Ford Mustang through his memories with it. Of course Brand created a CAD model of his car on a computer and from that structure he started assembling each parts with the use of papers and glue. The replica was called "One Piece At A Time". If you're familiar with Johnny Cash, he also had a song entitled One Piece at a Time, thus naming his remodeled car with that title is actually an honor to the said song. Surprisingly the song was about an assembly line worker who cleverly built a Cadillac from stolen parts, one piece at a time.
Brand explained his fragile creation :
“The details of the car are based more on my memory and a few photographs, I no longer have access to the original car and chose not to use a surrogate to measure and get all the details correct. I like when things are slightly off, in the wrong place or missing, just like my memories of the original.”
I wonder if he used recycled paper materials or old printouts, but I hardly doubt, since his cutouts are in printed in full color. But let's supposed he equipped the printer with bio-based ink cartridges or eco-friendly toner cartridges to reduce harmful effects once his jaw dropping creation worn-out and reach its disposal limit.
