One Artist Has Created A Weapon Of Mass Instruction To Put An End To Ignorance
Mar 22, 2015
Ever envision a mobile library force? Raul Lemesoff certainly did. An artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Lemesoff has converted a 1979 Ford Falcon into a library on wheels. But it is not just the concept that is a bit strange, it is the mode of travel that he has chosen that sets this work apart. The slightly eccentric artist turned the Ford Falcon into a tank-like automobile and has dubbed the beast the "Weapon of Mass Instruction" (Arma de Instruccion Masiva) and shares that he is using the vehicle to spread knowledge and battle ignorance. The vehicle now holds around 900 books, both inside and out, and his only demand when sharing books is that the new owners promise to read what he has given them.
