Abstract:A weapon is a device used to cause damage to living beings, structures, or systems. Weapons are used to increase the effect and efficiency of activities such as hunting, law enforcement, and warfare. In a broader context, weapons could be interpreted as a method used to gain a strategic, material, or mental advantage over objects or others. It could be said that, where there is a will, there is a weapon. Weapons bring tremendous destruction to humans and nature in war zones and other conflict areas, such as disordered social, political situations and deteriorative environment conditions. This thesis frames a productive approach to destructive weapons in landscape contexts. Specifically, it investigates and proposes the application of redundant weapons as tools for modifying landscape surfaces in two contexts: central Detroit, Michigan, and Lake Chad in Central Africa.
