Artist's Description

Machines build for moderate destruction against the natural at the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town.

While there are large organizations working on improving the design of vessels that float to make them bigger and faster, there are those who spend just as much effort time and money to build devices that will make them sink.
A little more than a century ago, a few years after two bicycle mechanics assembled a contraption that could stay in the air with the aid of an engine, there was someone among the spectators who looked up at these magnificent flying machines and thought: “If you improve them they can be used for carrying and dropping bombs” Nobody tried to stop him and the rest is history.
