Argentina: Weapon of mass instruction

This memory/art project has been written about quite a lot, but I hadn't read about it until today, and I just think it's so great:

Raúl Lemesoff has modified a Ford Falcon, which, as I've mentioned before, is an icon of repression in Argentina. And just look at it!

It's been converted into a tank shape and absolutely covered with books, hence the name, "Weapon of Mass Instruction" (Arma De Instruccion Masiva). The books are all donations and are given away to anyone who wants them. What a quirky, positive idea!

Thanks to Richard Grabman of The Mex Files for drawing my attention to this initative on his Facebook page.
