De Bathyscaaf
1999
Collection of the Verbeke Foundation

‘De Bathyscaaf’ is a deep-water laboratory, washed ashore.
It is a submarine suitable for research on huge depths of the ocean.
The captain Paul Reintjes lives and works here surrounded by books on nature, shipping, an extensive set of instruments and the necessary drinks and tobacco.
In reality, the Bathyscaphe is a converted tank, meant to lure the visitors in a complete fairy tale world.
