The imagery of movement

Driverless technology among others gives us an opportunity to rethink the entire design language of vehicles. But where lies the boundary between familiar and unfamiliar and how is motion visually related to an object? Are 4 wheels enough to create a sense of movement or do shape, volume and orientation also play an important role?

The following visual experiments try to give answers and raise questions about mobile aesthetics on the border of familiarity.
