What does Marilyn Monroe have in common with an Audi TT? According to Water de Silva a lot. In the development stages of the successor of the original TT, de Silva made a life-size print of Monroe. His intention was to show his employees that perception is mainly influenced by how the proportions are divided. Before his team saw the life-size print, no one guessed she had been shorter than 5’7“ (her actual size was 5 feet and 5 1/2 inches).
