I used an article from LIFE magazine, published in 1950, as a motif for the "Time Machine DeLorean" in the movie "Back to the Future". Originally, I would have preferred to use LIFE from 1955, but since there was nothing in the article that I could use, I decided to use one from 1950, the year of the Bikini hydrogen bomb test and other important features related to nuclear energy (plutonium) in the film. Therefore, I used many nuclear-related headlines and articles on the surface of the car. (In Part 1, the DeLorean time machine uses nuclear fusion to generate enormous amounts of power, making it possible to transcend time. I tried to show the difference between the effective use of nuclear weapons for the development of science and the use of nuclear weapons as weapons in LIFE, and the existence of the developer, Doc, who would do anything to make his dream come true.) Also, the title, "why not do it with some style. The title "why not do it with some style." refers to Doc's reason for modifying his beloved DeLorean in the movie. I used that as the title. This is one of my "mottoes" for creating my works.
