Bathyscaphe. The idea was born when I bought a Swedish water flask of the Second World War. Its shape reminded me a fish or a submarine. It is like a hybrid of a ship and of a fish. Aluminum flashlight corps served for this and a trumpet flapper replaced a periscope. A ship engine can be seen through a magnifying glass – it has been made of a pocket watch mechanism. A ship has been mounted on a plywood board that was aged before.
