The MineBuster Project was a direct spin off from my thesis at the Department of Industrial Design at the Aarhus School of Architecture which had caught the attention of representatives from the Danish Foreign Ministry at a time when the international campaign against landmines under the patronage of Princess Diana was gathering much attention worldwide. It was implemented in Cambodia from 1995 to 1997, when I was based in Phnom Penh working with international humanitarian landmine clearing organizations in various parts of the country. The project resulted in a series of prototypes being built and tested in live minefields. The final version was exposed at the International Mine Clearance Technology Conference in Copenhagen in 1996. In 1997 the project was interrupted and never came to a final conclusion, but as a direct consequence it resulted in my establishing a permanent base in Cambodia which eventually became my home.
