While most tanks ruin lives, Argentinian artist Raul Lemesoff has built one to encourage reading. Lemesoff’s “Weapon of Mass Instruction” sculpture to “attack people in a very nice and fun way.” The “tank” is built on a 1979 Ford Falcon. The following video, produced by 7-UP, shows the mobile library in action.
