In the vibrant streets of Buenos Aires, Argentina, an eccentric artist and his bizarre creation are on a mission to wage war against one of humanity’s oldest foes: ignorance. Raul Lemesoff, the mastermind behind this unorthodox project, has transformed a 1979 Ford Falcon into a tank-like vehicle with an extraordinary purpose — to spread knowledge and ignite a passion for reading among the masses.
The Birth of a Unique Vision
Raul Lemesoff’s journey into the realm of unconventional artistry began with a singular vision: the creation of a ‘Weapon Of Mass Instruction’ or ‘Arma de Instruccion Masiva’ in Spanish. While the name may evoke military connotations, this peculiar tank is not armed with destruction but with enlightenment.
The Unconventional Tank
At first glance, the ‘Weapon Of Mass Instruction’ resembles a formidable tank, complete with a swiveling turret and an imposing presence on the streets. However, upon closer inspection, it becomes evident that this vehicle is unlike any other. Instead of cannons and ammunition, it carries an arsenal of books — around 900 of them.
