DIESEL'S ARK The rains came and then the floods came. The waters rose. Droplets became puddles, ponds became lakes, and seas became oceans. As the world became sunk, S P A C E C R A F T built an ark; a vessel to carry them until the world – cleansed – would again be hospitable.

Comprising a mixture of installation, video and massive oceanic map the ARK played host to Diesel's Be Stupid campaign. Video Projection
