The Mine Kafon: a landmine clearer by Massoud Hassani

When Massoud Hassani was a little boy, he used to live in an area of Afghanistan that was, and still is, full of landmines. Building wind-powered toys as a child inspired him now as a designer to create a landmine clearer. With only 40€ production costs, this rolling object can save thousands of lives and thanks to donations and investors they have actually started producing the series. This beautiful mini-documentation is directed by Callum Cooper and the object itself will be part of a MOMA collection (New York).

About the author

Born and raised in the creative mecca Berlin, Mareike Muller worked her first professional years in advertising and design before she decided to apply for the citizenship of the world, leaving Berlin for Stockholm. Spending some years in fashionable capital of Sweden she continued her voyage via Barcelona to Buenos Aires, where she was living for almost two years, working as an artist agent spreading emerging art with her own agency The Eclectic Tomorrow. But, as stakes are high the search for the perfect place to live and work went on and brought her to vibrant Mexico City, where she´s relocating now continuing to broaden her scope, establishing her vision of spreading emerging art around the globe. When she´s not working, blogging or traveling around the world you’ll probably find her vintage clothing treasure hunting or sipping an Old Fashioned fantasizing about being a Mexican luchador’s wife and having some unicorns browsing in the backyard.
