In 1997, artists created Desert Breath, located near the Red Sea in El Gouna, Egypt. It is an enormous art project, covering nearly a million square feet. An incredibly inspired piece of work, built with mathematical precision, and still visible today, nearly twenty years later. Created by Danae Stratou and Alexandra Stratou, it’s quite an amazing natural art installation.

    Thanks for the link, Ben. I had no idea of that fantastic land art project. You are right: Good curators are badly needed.
