Remember when a mother’s love was enough to keep you safe at night? In an attempt to re-arm the military for less collateral damage I have made the soft shelled tank. These saggy, ineffectual toy tanks gently mock the authority of the military world. I have created the hackytank, a crocheted chariot of war that fits into the palm of your hand and can be kicked around anytime you feel the urge, (it is filled with chickpeas, so could also be boiled and eaten on the battlefield). This is my contribution to the war machine.
