Denevan & Baikal




Apparently this is Jim Denevan's art on the surface of Lake Baikal. Quite lovely and amazing to see, and that's a nice yurt he has going there. I'd love to hear some of the stories behind this one. Jim's beach art is featured, of course, in Patrick Trefz's film 'Thread'. And in his book 'Thread' which you can get from us for a mere $30 by emailing us at info @ foamandfunction.com. It may seem like I'm now working for Trefz (which in a way I seem to be, unpaid of course but that's how it works) but I hadn't seen these photos until yesterday and his films really are quite good, well worth you investigating if you haven't already done so.

An update: I love it when the comments are better than the post- thanks to Andrew Kidman I can steer you here which has some stunning photos and footage from this project.

That's definitely Denevan's work/art. It's the largest piece of art ever created on earth.
