David Mach uses found, mass-produced objects to create public art. In this early sculpture called Polaris, exhibited in London in 1983, David used 6000 car tires arranged in the shape of a Polaris submarine.
David's art was intended to protest against nuclear arms race. Someone disagreed, and tried to burn it down. Unfortunately, the man got caught in the flames and burnt to death.
